Parker did not take the stand in his own defense and will be sentenced on January 27.
It continues a troublesome trend in Albany. Since the start of 2009, eight state Senators have come under scrutiny for wrongdoing.

Pedro Epsada: Allegedly steered tax-payer money from a local health care facility into his pocket. Espada maintains he’s innocent.
Hiram Monserrate: Was found guilty of misdemeanor assault related to the night he says he accidentally broke a water glass against his girlfriend’s face. Monserrate has said prosecutors unfairly went after him and ignored his side of the story.
