The two men are half-brothers who live in Chicago. Prosecutors say they accepted a $1,500 bribe in 2008 when they were on the staff of one of three Board of Review commissioners.

The men were accused of reducing the assessed values of property in exchange for the money given to them by a former Chicago police officer who was cooperating with the FBI.
