DeStefano also asked the promoters to give him $10,000 to contribute to a Coliseum fireworks show the senior Parks hosted, the documents state. It was not clear whether that money made it to the show. Neither Parks is accused of wrongdoing.
City records show that the only contribution Parks' campaign received from the promoters in 2010 was $250 from Rotella.
In the court documents, prosecutors say that none of the nine commissioners was informed by those involved that DeStefano was working on the side for the promoters. Then-incoming commission President David Israel has said Lynch notified him about DeStefano's side job in January 2011.
DeStefano is also accused of embezzling a total of $240,000 from DreamWorks, Coca-Cola, the producers of the television show "American Gladiators" and the Southern Wine & Spirits company. DreamWorks and "American Gladiators" used the Sports Arena for location filming. Coca Cola and Southern Wine sold drinks there. The documents say DeStefano "tricked" the companies into believing they were paying the Coliseum because the money went to a company he founded called Los Angeles Coliseum Events.
Lynch told the commission's lawyer, Donovan Main, in 2009 that DeStefano was considering doing outside work for promoters, according to the documents. Main warned Lynch that such a relationship could violate conflict of interest laws, the documents say, but the general manager still allowed DeStefano to run Insomniac and Go Ventures concerts in his government job while being paid by the companies.
In the counts against Lynch and Estrada, prosecutors alleged that they formed a partnership in 2006 in which the contractor paid the general manager $1 for every hour worked by a janitorial employee. This alleged kickback was financed with an increase in Estrada's hourly rates that Lynch arranged, according to the documents.
To endorse the checks deposited in the Miami bank, Estrada used a rubber stamp of Lynch's signature, the documents say.
