Former assessor charged with taking Kodak-related bribes

Federal authorities on Tuesday charged a former Greece assessor with taking bribes to significantly reduce property values for Eastman Kodak Co. in Monroe County's largest town.

Prosecutors say Charles Schwab, 58, of Victor, allegedly conspired with Yates County appraiser John Nicolo, 72, and former Kodak real estate executive Mark Camarata, 42, in a scheme that reduced Kodak's property value in Greece by a total of $65.8 million.
