Capital NY reported yesterday that NY AG Eric Schneiderman has filed a second set of criminal charges against Queens City Councilman Ruben Wills in less than a year.

(Via Capital NY) New York City councilman Ruben Wills has been indicted on five counts of filing false documents with the New York City Conflict of Interest Board, state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said in a release Tuesday.

Wills allegedly filed five different statements with the board between 2011 and 2013 that each failed to disclose “certain financial dealings,” Schneiderman’s office said in a statement.If convicted, Wills would face between 16 months and four years in prison, the statement said.

Wills served as an aide to former state senator Shirley Huntley, who was arrested on corruption charges by Schneiderman in 2012, before joining the City Council in 2011.
