CINCINNATI — Cincinnati City Councilman P.G. Sittenfeld announced he will “temporarily” step down from his seat as he faces several charges in a federal bribery case.

A federal grand jury indicted Sittenfeld, 36, last month on charges of honest services wire fraud, bribery concerning programs receiving federal funds and attempted extortion under color of official right.
