Quantcast

By Sadef Kully

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — Former Bayside City Councilman Dan Halloran was sentenced to 10 years and one month in prison Wednesday for his role in a bribery scheme to secure a spot on the Republican line for former state Sen. Malcolm Smith in the 2013 mayoral race.

Federal Judge Kenneth Karas imposed the sentence following Halloran’s jury conviction last summer on five counts involving Smith’s mayoral bid and the councilman’s plot to direct city money to a sham charity in exchange for support for his failing congressional campaign.

Halloran, who wore a suit and a baby blue tie, sat with his hands folded over his mouth at the defense table next to his lawyer.

He also will be required to serve two years’ probation after his sentence is completed, but the judge said the disgraced Republican legislator would not be charged any fines because he does not have the money to pay them.

Halloran was scheduled to turn himself in April 17 to begin serving the sentence. His lawyer is appealing his conviction.
