Fmr. Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver Found Guilty in Retrial

Former New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver Sentenced For Political Corruption

A federal jury delivers guilty verdicts on all counts in the corruption retrial of former State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver.   

Prosecutors had accused Silver of using his position as Assembly Speaker to do favors in exchange for $4 million dollars in bribes.  

Silver was convicted in 2015, but the verdict was thrown out after the Supreme Court changed the definition of corruption. 

Earlier in the day Friday the jurors asked for all government graphs, data numbers and exhibits pertaining to the list of charges.
