Statement Of Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara On The Sentencing Of Former Bronx City Councilman Larry Seabrook

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Southern District of New York

“Councilman Larry Seabrook sacrificed the public trust on the altar of greed. He was a flagrant and serial abuser of City Council discretionary funds in a far too familiar New York tale of corruption. Today’s sentence finally vindicates the interests of the constituents whose trust he so casually violated by his fraud. We remain committed to making those who are corrupted by power pay the price, and the public can expect more arrests of politicians who have not learned this lesson.”
