NEW YORK - The judge in the federal corruption trial of former Yonkers City Councilwoman Sandy Annabi said today there would be no more breaks for jurors as day four of deliberations ended without a verdict.
The 12 members of the jury today asked for notes about FDIC-insured banks and for evidence regarding Annabi's alleged false statements when applying for mortgages and loans.
The former Yonkers city councilwoman is charged with bribery, corruption, extortion and conspiracy. If convicted on all 11 counts, she faces 166 years behind bars.
Her political mentor, Zehy Jereis, is also waiting to learn his fate. He is charged with attempting to control Annabi?s city council votes by accepting bribe money and passing it to her. If Jereis is found guilty on all six counts, he faces 80 years behind bars.
