Ramapo Supervisor St. Lawrence Found Guilty On 20 Counts

A 12-member jury found Town of Ramapo Supervisor Christopher St. Lawrence guilty on Friday of 20 of 22 federal charges of rigging the town's financial books in order to receive lower rates on bonds to finance a baseball stadium in Pomona and other town projects.
The jury returned guilty verdicts on 12 wire fraud counts and eight counts of securities fraud. He was acquitted of one count of securities fraud and one count of wire fraud.
Rockland County Executive Ed Day quickly responded to the guilty verdict by saying: “Holding public office is a privilege. Any public official found guilty of breaking the law has violated that sacred public trust," Day said. "The conclusion of this jury that the Ramapo Supervisor broke the law is a stain on the town and all of Rockland County. We support every effort to restore integrity to Ramapo.”
This is a developing story.

Best news ever. Waiting years for this. Hope he can spill his guts to get a sentencing deal.
