LOS ANGELES (AP) — California state Sen. Ron Calderon has surrendered to federal authorities to face multiple corruption counts involving bribes, kickbacks and fraud.

U.S. attorney's spokesman Thom Mrozek says Calderon was taken into custody in Los Angeles late Monday morning.

The legislator's arraignment is scheduled for 2 p.m. PST in federal court.

The Democrat was charged Friday with accepting $100,000 in bribes and lavish trips and funneling some of the money to his children and political groups that he and his brother controlled.

His brother Tom, a former state lawmaker-turned-lobbyist, is charged with money-laundering.
