Former Chicago alderman Ambrosio Medrano pleaded guilty Tuesday to wire fraud.

Prosecutors said he took bribes and kickbacks in a scheme to sell bandages to Stroger Hospital.

It is the third time Medrano has been found guilty in a corruption case.

Even though he pleaded guilty in this case, there is no deal for prison time.

Prosecutors will ask for about 20 years.
