Former Senator Bruno Guilty




BRUNO
FOUND
GUILTY


Former Senate Majority Leader Joseph L. Bruno was convicted of federal corruption today for exploiting his political office to enrich himself through side “consultant” work that conflicted with his role as one of the most powerful men in New York state government.

The 80-year-old Republican from Brunswick sat quietly as the jury of seven women and five men rendered its verdict about 4:15 p.m.: Guilty on two counts of mail and wire fraud.
