A jury Friday night convicted a 75-year-old Delaware County politician of a bribery scheme, but he remains in office.

Jurors found Upland Borough Councilman Edward Mitchell guilty of receiving more than $100,000 in kickbacks from highly-inflated costs to install security systems in Borough buildings.

The Council President is calling on him to resign.

If he doesn't the Delaware County District Attorney says she'll file a motion to remove him from office immediately upon sentencing.
