NY Politician Arrested on Bribery & Extortion Charges

State Assemblyman William Boyland Jr. was just acquitted on federal corruption charges, but was arrested again on charges of briber and extortion. Boyland is being accused of soliciting more than $250,000 in payoffs in exchange for helping an amusement park businessman. The businessman was actually an FBI informant, who recorded all the meetings.

Boyland is also under fire for soliciting a $250,000 payoff in exchange for a scheme to help two undercover operatives try to buy and renovate a Brooklyn hospital for $8 million and then resell it for $15 million. The charges in this case claim that he was soliciting this money when he was previously on trial.

Boyland was released on $100,00 bail, and left work without comment.
