After pleading not guilty in court yesterday to charges that he stole $109,000 allocated to a community group to fund his own campaign operations, and being released on a $500,000 bond (he put up his parents' house), former state senator Hiram Monserrate told reporters that his legal troubles would provide him with "a couple more chapters" for his memoir, which we've heard about before. And he might have plenty of time to write it, too: The two charges of mail fraud he faces each carry a maximum prisons sentence of twenty years.

Indictment is just 'a couple of more chapters' in my book, says disgraced ex-pol Hiram Monserrate [NYDN]
