NY state senator says she expects to be arrested


ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A veteran New York state senator under investigation by the state attorney general's office says she expects to be arrested.
Sen. Shirley Huntley, a Queens Democrat, didn't indicate what the charge against her might be.
She plans to turn herself in on Monday in the state's continuing investigation into the use of pork-barrel grants by legislators.
Huntley founded a nonprofit social service and education group that Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is investigating. She funded it in part with state grants.
Indictments accuse some of the groups' executives of theft. Huntley denies wrongdoing.
A spokesman for the attorney general acknowledged Huntley's comments but declined to elaborate.
Huntley is facing New York City Councilman James Sanders Jr. and community activist Gian Jones in a tough Sept. 13 Democratic primary.
