2020 Dem Contender's Aide FACES 50 Years Behind Bars
Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s former top aide Joseph Percoco was convicted Tuesday on three corruption charges — but cleared of three others in a surprise, mixed verdict.

Percoco, 48, was found guilty on two counts of conspiracy to commit honest-services fraud in a pair of “pay-to-play” scams that the feds say netted him more than $300,000 from execs at two companies doing business with the state.

But while Percoco was convicted of soliciting bribes from the Competitive Power Ventures energy company, he was acquitted of a similar charge involving the Syracuse-based COR Development Co.

He also was acquitted of two extortion raps in both schemes.
