A newly elected Leon County Commissioner is now at the center of an ethics investigation.
The Florida Commission on Ethics says Commissioner Akin Akinyemi failed to disclose some of his financial interests as required by elected officials in his position.
Those interests include bank accounts and other investments.
The Commission also says that if found guilty, his penalty may range from a Public Censure Reprimand up to removal from office.
The most common is the civil penalty, where Akinyemi would have to pay up to 10-thousand dollars for each violation.
Further action is expected in this case and we'll keep you updated on any developments.
