September 17, 2015- This week, former New York Assemblyman and soldier of Sheldon Silver, William Scarborough, was slapped with 13-years in prison for fudging travel expenses. Now, another assemblyman is getting 14-years.
All of this should make Sheldon Silver nervous. The former powerful speaker is being prosecuted as we speak.
The Post reports, “Disgraced ex-Brooklyn Assemblyman William Boyland Jr. was sentenced to 14 years in prison Thursday on a slew of corruption charges, with the federal judge saying she didn’t think he had “any redeeming characteristics” before handing down her sentence.
“This defendant clearly had no respect for the law,” Brooklyn federal Judge Sandra Townes lashed into Boyland, 45, before sentencing the crooked politician.”
