Former New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver Sentenced To Seven Years


Former New York state Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver (D) on Friday was sentenced to seven years in prison for public corruption.

The sentence comes after his initial conviction and 12-year sentence in 2015 was thrown out by an appeals court.

Silver, a former top ally of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), faced up to 130 years in prison after being convicted of seven counts of federal corruption in May.
