Ex-New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver has been indicted on three charges after being arrested in a federal bribery case last month.
Silver was indicted on Thursday by a grand jury in Manhattan federal court. The charges are honest services mail fraud, honest services wire fraud and extortion under the color of his official duties.
Lawyers Joel Cohen and Steven Molo say they will “fight for his total vindication.'' Silver has said he is confident it will come.
