Nuru and Nick Bovis are facing honest services wire fraud charges in connection with an alleged scheme to bribe a San Francisco Airport Commissioner.

"Our client is a really good guy, family man, hard-working and virtually an institution in San Francisco," Mike Stepanian, Bovis' attorney said. "And I think it's all going to come out in the wash"

Today was largely procedural with future court dates being set on the calendar.
