Jury selection is scheduled to begin Monday morning in the second trial of former New York state Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno.

His conviction on two counts in the first trial was thrown out.

Bruno was raised in Glens Falls and dispersed power from his home in Brunswick for 14 years as leader of the state Senate.

Prosecutors say he steered some of that influence and financial gain back for his own personal gain.
