NEW YORK CITY With a jury now seated in the New York state corruption case, prosecutors and defense lawyers are expected to present their arguments today.
Each side is expected to begin with opening statements that will lay out whether a top aide in Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office participated in a bribery scheme with two Syracuse developers and a Hudson Valley energy company executive. Attorney’s Office will have a chance to present its opening argument first, followed by each of the attorneys for the four defendants, including former Cuomo aide Joseph Percoco, Cor principals Steven Aiello and Joseph Gerardi, and energy executive Peter Galbraith Kelly.
It’s not clear yet whether,
or how, the defense team will work together to fight the bribery and corruption charges.
