Espada, Arraigned In Federal Court


Ex-New York State Senator Pedro Espada, Arraigned In Court, “Absolutely Ready” For His Corruption Case.

Ex-state Sen. Pedro Espada and his son Pedro G. Espada were arraigned in federal court today on charges they stole money from their Soundview health clinic to pay for their lavish lifestyle.

Federal prosecutors filed a superseding indictment today, adding two additional charges of creating false documents. Both Espadas pled not guilty to the charges.

Leaving the courthouse in Brooklyn this evening, Espada said he felt good about his case, and was confident that he and his son would be vindicated. (More…)

The trial is expected to begin on February 17 and may last for several months.
