in life time benefits?

Here is more on the arrest of Commerce Mayor Pro Tem Robert Fierro, and his wife Linda and her sister-in-law Ana Perez. BTW, every political crime gang has to have a cool nickname. I am going to call these crooks the "Commerce 3." Got it. "Commerce 3."
It turns out that "the Commerce 3" are Los Angeles Unified School District employees, and all three have been suspended depending the outcome of the federal charges.
Here is the lo' down:
Robert Fierro is a teacher at Bridge Street Elementary School in Boyle Heights.
Linda Fierro is a teacher at Brooklyn Elementary School in East Los Angeles.
Ana Perez is principal of Hamasaki Elementary School in East Los Angeles.
(In case your wondering, Brooklyn Avenue Elementary School is the same school that controversial State Assemblyman Tony Mendoza (D-56th District) served on the faculty before he was elected to serve in Sacramento in 2006.)
Hey....I wonder if WE taxpayers are going to have to pay for "the Commerce 3's" LIFE TIME PENSIONS AND RETIREMENTS IF they are ALL convicted and sent to jail?
The indictment also charges the councilman's wife, Linda Fierro, 36, and the councilman's sister-in-law, Ana Perez, 45, with conspiracy and witness tampering. All three of them if found guilty could be facing 10 years in Federal Prison.
Perez, who was the treasurer of Fierro's 2005 campaign, was additionally charged with two counts of making false declarations before the grand jury.
The indictment alleges that Perez, other family members and friends of the then-City Council candidate wrote two $500 checks apiece to Fierro's campaign in January 2005, when he was first running for the office.
