Sheldon Silver in police car arrestedApril 24, 2015- The NYT reports, “Federal prosecutors filed a new criminal charge on Thursday against Sheldon Silver, the former speaker of the State Assembly, and split each of the three fraud counts he already faced into two charges.

While the superseding indictment adds four new counts, only one is actually based on new accusations that had not already been detailed in an earlier criminal complaint and an indictment, which was unsealed on Feb. 19.

The new charge, monetary transactions involving crime proceeds, accuses Mr. Silver of transferring more than $287,000 in what the indictment says were the proceeds of his crimes into investments that were not available to the general public.”
