DETROIT — A former federal agent has pleaded guilty to bribery and conspiracy in a case involving a suburban Detroit lawyer.

The U.S. Attorney's office said 49-year-old Clifton Divers appeared last week in U.S. District Court in Detroit.

Authorities have said Divers used his position as an Immigration and Customs Enforcement - Homeland Security Investigations agent to obtain deferrals of deportations and other immigration benefits for non-citizen foreign nationals.

Attorney Charles Busse pleaded guilty in 2016 to bribery and conspiracy to defraud the United States, tax evasion and failing to report payments of more than $10,000.

Busse, of Birmingham, was accused of paying bribes for deportation deferrals and other benefits for clients.

He was sentenced last year to three years in prison.
