Court documents allege Sud solicited bribes from a lobbyist in exchange for Sud's assistance in September 2015. Prosecutors say after that, Sud and the lobbyist discussed Sud voting favorably in two upcoming hearings concerning the lobbyist's clients for money.

Prosecutors say at each of the hearings Sud took favorable action on behalf of the clients, and the lobbyist then paid Sud $1,000.

He's charged with two counts of bribery. He faces up to 10 years in prison on each count.
