INDIANAPOLIS A federal judge has accepted a former Marion County deputy prosecutor's guilty plea to accepting a bribe.

U.S. District Judge Sarah Evans Barker accepted 53-year-old David Wyser's agreement with prosecutors Tuesday in Indianapolis.

The plea bargain requires Wyser to tell prosecutors everything he knows about public corruption in Indianapolis.

Wyser could face up to 10 years in prison. Prosecutors recommended his sentence be reduced, but Barker is not bound by the recommendation.

No date for sentencing was set.

Wyser was the top deputy prosecutor under former Marion County Prosecutor Carl Brizzi. Prosecutors allege he accepted a $2,500 bribe in 2009 to reduce the 70-year sentence of a prisoner convicted of murder and conspiracy to commit murder. The money allegedly came from the prisoner's father.
