Because of a July Supreme Court ruling on the "honest services" statute (often used to prosecute allegedly corrupt politicians), former State Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno's two felony convictions will likely be overturned, federal officials conceded yesterday. Bruno was sentenced to two years in prison but never served time as the courts waited to see how the Supreme Court would rule on the related case. [NYP]
