Ex-Speaker Of NY Assembly Guilty In Public Corruption Case, Report Says

Recommended Posts

Quote

 

The longtime New York politician Sheldon Silver was reportedly found guilty Friday after facing charges of public corruption.

The 74-year-old, who will be sentenced in mid-June, said he felt “disappointed at this point” but planned to appeal, The Associated Press reported.

“I am very confident that the judicial process will play out in my favor,” the Democratic former Assembly speaker said as he departed the courthouse.

The jury’s decision was the second time Silver has heard this verdict. He was also found guilty during his first trial in 2015, however that conviction was repealed by an appeals court following the Supreme Court’s decision that adjusted what was legally considered as corruption.

He's been found guilty now twice.  Throw his ass in jail already!  If they let him sit out jail time while waiting for appeal, we have serious problems in our legal system here in NYS.

Hey, just keep appealing til a judge says you're too old to go to prison. 

Of course if it were any of us we'd be wearing an orange jumpsuit already.

Next up, Dean Skelos and his sleazebag son.  June 18th retrial date (but they are trying everything they can to get the date changed and trial moved out of state and the key witness against them tossed)  Stay tuned ...
