LA Councilman Alarcon facing probe

Los Angeles City Councilman Richard Alarcon has informed his colleagues that he anticipates facing some type of criminal charges, likely stemming from questions about whether he actually lives in the district he represents.

Alarcon declined to comment during today's council meeting, but several council members confirmed that they received a note from Alarcon discussing the situation.

Councilman Bill Rosendahl says it was "just a note telling us what was going on and that he wanted us to know that he was innocent and that he would fight whatever he needs to fight if there's something to fight.''

In January, the District Attorney's Office served warrants at two homes owned by Alarcon's wife — one in Panorama City within his district, and another in Sun Valley, which is represented by Paul Kerkorian. Alarcon has previously denied any wrongdoing.
