Sources: Castro To Be Indicted In State Supreme Court

  • Text size: + -

Sources tell NY1 that former Bronx Assemblyman Nelson Castro, who resigned last week as part of an agreement to be an informant for the investigation that led to the arrest of Bronx Assemblyman Eric Stevenson, will be indicted in state Supreme Court on Wednesday.

A statement from the Bronx District Attorney's office said only that an indictment against "a former New York State Assemblyman" would be unsealed tomorrow, but sources confirmed to NY1 that it would be Castro.

Castro's cooperation with investigators, which had been going on for four years, allowed him to record Stevenson allegedly accepting more than $22,000 in bribes from four other defendants who were trying to open adult day care centers in the Bronx.

The legislation would have placed a moratorium on anyone who tried to open competing centers.

As part of Castro's deal, U.S. attorneys agreed to dismiss an unknown indictment against him.
