Convicted ex-Brooklyn Assemblyman Norman back in court
? A former Brooklyn Assemblyman, who was convicted for his campaign funding practices, headed back to court Wednesday to face more charges.
Clarence Norman Jr. is accused of double billing his travel expenses and keeping the money. Prosecutors claim the State Assembly and Kings County Democratic Committee both reimbursed him for a total of $6,000. Norman?s attorney says he will argue that his client did not intend to steal the money. Norman also faces a coercion charge for allegedly pressuring judicial candidates to use Democratic-backed companies to print their campaign literature. Jury selection begins March 6.
In January, a judge in a separate corruption trial sentenced the ex-assemblyman to a term of two to six years. Norman was convicted of taking funds from his campaign and depositing them into his personal bank account.
