The New York Times reports that yesterday, Carl Kruger, who resigned in disgrace from his post as New York senator in December, was sentenced to seven years in prison for his part in an ever-unfolding conspiracy that points to more corruption in Albany. He pleaded guilty to corruption charges after having been accused of accepting upwards of $1 million in bribes from hospital executives and lobbyists. Prosecutors had been seeking a sentence of 9 to 11 years, but Judge Jed S. Rakoff handed down a lesser sentence indicating good deeds. Kruger, from Brooklyn, is reported as giving a statement prior to the sentencing: “My actions will forever overshadow whatever legacy I managed to achieve. I have no one but myself to blame, and that reality will haunt me for the rest of my life.”
