Sheldon Silver Complains Of Paying Taxes But Is Denying Driving Into Court Before July 20

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, July 17 – In the run-up to the re-sentencing of Sheldon Silver on July 20, on July 17 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Valerie E. Caproni held a proceeding. Inner City Press live tweeted it, below.

For July 20, Judge Caproni described the SDNY's COVID-19 entry process, and said that while the re-sentencing will happen in 40 Foley Square's Courtroom 110, Courtroom 506 will be an overflow room to allow for social distancing.

Here was the live tweet: Sheldon Silver's lawyer is saying Silver is concerned about coming to the  SDNY  courthouse. What if the press approach him? 

Judge Caproni says press can call in if they want. ] Shelton Silver's lawyer asked if he can be allowed to drive into the SDNY courthouse, essentially to avoid the press.

 No, Judge Caproni says. She describes the courthouse as clean as a whistle and largely empty  AUSA Richenthal describing the money due for the affirmed scheme Richenthal: The government should get all fees from referrals of patients from 2008 and before. 

Now Sheldon Silver's lawyer tells Judge Caproni that Silver will be taxed on forfeited funds, says the Government mistakenly liquidates some funds. "He's going to have a significant tax bill... $400,000 is known, some is unknown...

Silver's lawyer: "If there's any imprisonment, he'll lose his Social Security and health benefits, he'll have to pay his wife's health insurance out of his own pocket."


 The case is US v. Silver, 15-cr-93 (Caproni)
