Prosecutors allege Jones took three bribes from the owner of a company that obtained contracts to do street repairs for the Unified Government.
Jones, of Kansas City, Kansas, also is charged with five counts of money laundering.
Prosecutors alleged Jones funneled the money through his bank account and the account of a Kansas City church where he was a minister.
