Sheldon Silver's Conviction Could be Overturned

Former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver could have his latest conviction overturned.Three federal judges heard oral arguments on Wednesday from prosecutors and Silver's lawyers who are appealing his conviction for accepting more than $4 million in bribes.

According to reports, one judge said a description from prosecutors of what Silver promised to do in exchange for the money was "pretty squishy."

There's no word on when the judges could make a ruling.

Silver was sentenced to seven years in prison but is still free on bail.
