BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman announced Friday a grand jury indictment charging G. Steven Pigeon, 56, Kristy Mazurek, 46, and David Pfaff, 58, each with two class E felonies related to unlawful coordination with candidates for the Erie County Legislature. The three defendants were previously arraigned on a felony complaint regarding the same charges on April 19, 2017.

Each defendant faces a maximum sentence of four years if convicted on either count. The indictment stems from a joint investigation conducted by the Office of the Attorney General, the New York State Police, the FBI, and the New York State Board of Elections.
