Silver Chin SquadronApril 20, 2016- The NYT reports, “Federal prosecutors in Manhattan asked a judge on Wednesday to sentence Sheldon Silver, the former New York Assembly speaker, to more than 14 years in prison for his conviction on corruption charges.

The government did not propose a specific sentence, but it asked for a prison term “substantially in excess” of the 10 years that the court’s probation department had recommended. The government said that Mr. Silver’s sentence should be “greater than any sentence imposed on other New York State legislators convicted of public corruption offenses.””
