The former leader of New York's Senate, acquitted of federal fraud charges last week, said Monday he'll ask the state to pay his legal bills.
The former leader of the New York state Senate was acquitted Friday of federal fraud charges, ending a nearly nine-year corruption investigation after four hours of jury deliberations.
A federal jury on Thursday began deliberating two fraud charges against the former New York state Senate leader after prosecutors and defense attorneys accused each other of using half-truths and misrepresenting testimony.
A federal judge has agreed to shorten the daily schedule for retired state Sen. Joe Bruno's second fraud trial unless the ex-Senate leader uses the extra time for press conferences on the courthouse steps.
Retired Sen. Joe Bruno said two trials and appeals cost him more than $4 million.
