The pressure for four of the five San Jacinto City Council to resign has increased after the members were indicted.

The four, California Mayor Jimmie Dale Stubblefield, Jr., 41, vice mayor John Mansperger, 41, councilmen James Williams Ayres, 48, and Potts, 67, have been charged with 155-counts of criminal charges, including allegations of bribery, conspiracy and money laundering. District Attorney Rod Pacheco called the groups of charges the largest political corruption case in Riverside County history.

The case involves 56 felonies and 99 misdemeanors. In some instances, some of the defendants face up to 20-plus years if they are convicted on all the charges against them.

Along with Ayres' wife, Nancy Ayres, who is a San Jacinto Unified School District board member, the other defendants are Steven Russell Holgate, 62, Scott Douglas Shaull, 45, Byron Jerry Ellison, 70, and Robert Edward Osborne, 69. The four men are business associates of the council members or the city.

According to published reports, the only other councilman, Steve Di Memmo, has called on the others to step down.[1]
