Former Comptroller Hevesi May Plead Guilty in Pension Probe

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

Reports say former New York State Comptroller Alan Hevesi may plead guilty as early as this morning to a corruption charge for his role in a scandal involving the state's multibillion dollar pension fund.

State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo's office released a statement last night saying no agreement has been reached.

Hevesi controlled the pension fund until his resignation in 2006 when he pleaded guilty to a felony. He admitted using state workers to chauffeur his wife.

Earlier this month, Cuomo reached a million-dollar settlement with Bill White, the former president of the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum and a former fundraiser for Hevesi.
