Reports: Hevesi Hospitalized, Sentencing Postponed

Albany, NY (WIBX) – The former New York State Comptroller who pleaded guilty to corruption charges had his sentencing postponed today because he is hospitalized for an ’emergency procedure’ due to a medical issue, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Alan Hevesi faces upto four-years in prison after admitting to taking $1 million in gifts in a pay-to-play scandal with the state’s pension fund.

Also, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Lewis Bart Stone has assigned the rescheduled sentencing to another judge. Justice Stone said that’s because he has ties to the father of Hevesi’s lawyer, Bradley Simon.

The judge said that the situation had become an issue in the media, but indicated recusing himself from the case was not neccessary, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Hevesi is now scheduled for sentencing next Monday.
