Former state Comptroller Alan Hevesi reportedly could be facing more legal trouble over the state's pension fund.

The Daily News says separate investigations by the Albany County D.A. and state Attorney General Andrew Cuomo have uncovered several conflicts of interest.

It says some investors in the fund may have provided services to "Mod Squad" actress Peggy Lipton, whom Hevesi's former chief of staff was said to be interested in. And it says the probes are looking into how some people close to Hevesi may have made money from the fund.

As comptroller, Hevesi was in charge of the state pension fund. The findings could lead to criminal charges against top Hevesi aides and possibly even Hevesi himself.

The paper says Cuomo could call for changes to the fund, including taking control of it away from the comptroller.

Hevesi resigned from office and pleaded guilty to a felony last December for using state workers to drive his wife.
