Cuomo Draws First Blood

Written by John DeSio on . Posted in Politics, Posts.

Though the investigation was likely handled almost entirely
during Eliot Spitzer time in the office, State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo
has claimed his first hide, announcing today the sentencing of a former chief
executive of a Horseheads, New York building
company, after he plead guilty to stealing $210,000 from a resident of Wisconsin  (no link available just yet).

"This defendant broke the law by deceiving and
stealing from his own investors," Cuomo said.  "We will continue to hold businesses and
their executives accountable for defrauding investors, and will seek
restitution to compensate victims whenever possible."

Thieves beware.
