DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Former Dallas City Council member Don Hill passed away Sunday morning due to a terminal illness after his release from prison.

Hill was released from the Bureau of Prisons Friday after a judge’s order Monday due to having a terminal illness.

The former councilman was convicted of bribery in a Dallas City Hall scandal and was serving an 18-year prison sentence.

The case charged that Hill accepted bribes from affordable housing developers in return for political favors at City Hall.
