A former New York State Assembly speaker (like speaker of the house) Sheldon Silver was convicted of major corruption last year.

Now finally he has been sentenced to 12 years in prison.

Looking at his picture, it could amount to "life".

This fumble-flop was taking millions in bribes and kickbacks.

Some of which was connected to lawyer scams (of course he is a lawyer too).

Blue Ribbon material all the way !!!

Former New York Assembly speaker sentenced to 12 years in prison in corruption case


Former New York State Assembly speaker Sheldon Silver was sentenced Tuesday to 12 years in prison in a federal corruption case that prosecutors said “struck at the core of democratic governance” and polluted the institution where he wielded immense power.

Silver, 72, was convicted last year of taking millions of dollars in bribes and kickbacks in exchange for various official favors. According to prosecutors, Silver, a lawyer, persuaded a doctor to pass on “valuable leads to unrepresented patients with mesothelioma,” and in return, gave the doctor state grants for research. He also took official actions to help real estate developers that gave business to a law firm that then sent Silver kickbacks, prosecutors said.


"Serves" him right

What a wonderful guy Sheldon must be.

The 'state' let's him get away with it until the best years of his life pass ...

Then put him in a high-roller's institution on the taxpayer's dime as an old folk's home.

Somebody oughta take him (and his cronies) out into the harbor and use him as bait.

He got the book thrown at him for something that's done as a matter of business in other offices. People have been going through his trash trying to bring him down on anything for a decade

what about his accomplices? the people whom bribed him and gave him kickbacks... are they innocent, or they just were smart enough not to get caught. ?
