Prosecutors OK Bruno being free during appeals process

Bruno Bruno

ALBANY, N.Y. -- Former State Senator Joe Bruno is getting a bit of support from the prosecutors who tried his case.

They are not opposing letting Bruno remain free as he appeals his conviction for theft of honest services.

The Supreme Court recently ruled on the law, and found it should only apply to public officials who take bribes or kickbacks. In a letter to Federal Judge Gary Sharpe, Bruno's attorney says neither of those actions were alleged by prosecutors.

The judge is considering whether the convictions will likely be overturned by a federal appeals court.
