COMPTON, Calif. (AP) -- Former Compton Mayor Omar Bradley wants his old job back even though he's facing retrial in a corruption case.(backslash)
The Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/W6jEsC ) says Bradley filed Tuesday to run for mayor of the Los Angeles suburb in the April election. Bradley says his community needs him.
He's among a dozen candidates are trying to unseat current Mayor Eric Perrodin, including former child star Rodney Allen Rippy.
Bradley was convicted in 2004 of misusing public funds. Prosecutors say he used a city-issued credit card for personal expenses, including shoes, cigars and a hotel stay.
An appeal court tossed the conviction last August but prosecutors plan to retry him.
