State Sen. John Sampson has been indicted on two counts embezzlement, five counts of obstruction of justice and two counts of making false statements to the FBI, prosecutors announced Monday.
Both state and federal prosecutors were using Nelson Castro as a mole in Albany. He wore a wire and helped snare Bronx Assemblyman Eric Stevenson. Stevenson’s been charged in a bribe-for-legislation scandal.
The embarrassing corruption scandals that took down a state senator and two assemblymen may finally lead to ethics changes. Sources told CBS 2 on Monday the Legislature is expected to make it easier for local lawmen to root out public corruption.
“Watch your backs.” That is the warning from federal prosecutors to crooked New York politicians, after another one was arrested.
Lloyd Morgan was shot in the head and killed last week when a gun battle broke out at the Forest Houses, police said.
Officer Richard Haste, 30, is expected to surrender on Wednesday morning on a first-degree manslaughter charge. Sources told CBS 2, Haste will be suspended from the NYPD once he turns himself in and is placed under arrest.
“We’re tired of hearing case after case of police brutality and savage-like beatings and killings of our teenagers. So policy now has to be changed,” said Bronx Assemblyman Eric Stevenson.
