Dem Assemblyman Set to Plead Guilty to Corruption Charges

State Assemblyman William Boyland (D-Brooklyn) is expected to plead guilty to federal corruption charges next week according to prosecutors.

Boyland was facing up to 20 years and a $250,000 fine after having mail fraud charges tacked on in March.  This, in addition to bribery (he solicited an undercover FBI agent twice), extortion, and filing false claims.

In other words, Boyland has the resume of a typical New York Democrat.

Via the Daily News:

Brooklyn Assemblyman William Boyland, Jr. is expected to plead guilty to federal corruption charges next week, prosecutors revealed Monday.

Boyland was charged in a January 2012 indictment with soliciting bribes from undercover FBI agents, and later with fraudulently billing the state for mileage and per diem expenses.

“The parties are engaged in plea negotiations and expect that the defendant will be prepared to enter a plea of guilty on Sept. 24,” Assistant Brooklyn U.S. Attorneys Robert Capers and Lan Nguyen stated in court papers.

While the crime Boyland will be pleading guilty to remains unknown, a felony conviction would end his political career.
