State Sen. Kruger surrenders in federal conspiracy case
State Sen. Carl Kruger (D-Brooklyn) turned himself in this morning in connection with a conspiracy scheme that allegedly put millions of dollars in his pocket.
The U.S. District Attorney's Office says Kruger is accused of being involved in a web of corruption involving elected officials, company CEOs and lobbyists.
The office says Kruger took steps in his job as a state senator to ensure that millions of dollars in state money went into development projects that he took bribes from.
Kruger faces a number of charges along with six others accused in the case. If convicted, the senator could face up to 60 years in prison.
