Charges Mount Against Two State Lawmakers

Thursday, April 07, 2011 - 10:33 PM

Bribery can now be added to the list of federal charges facing embattled state Senator Carl Kruger.  The Brooklyn Democrat, former Senate Finance Committee chairman from 2008 to 2010, had already surrendered to authorities on charges of conspiracy and money-laundering in a federal influence peddling case announced last month.  Assemblyman William Boyland was also named in the indictment.

The two lawmakers, along with six other defendants, now face 11 counts, up from prosecutors' original three counts. The new Superseding indictment also means all eight defendants will be tried on one indictment.

The defendants will be arraigned in federal court on Monday.
