Jury selection begins in Silver corruption re-trial
April 16, 2018 06:47 PM
Jury selection got underway Monday in the re-trial of former State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver.
Opening statements in the trial won't start until April 30, because prosecutors say a key witness is sick.
Silver is being retried after his 2015 corruption conviction was overturned by an appeals court, that cited a Supreme Court ruling narrowing public corruption law.
