Pedro Espada Jr.'s case set to go to court

 Liz Benjamin writes that September 12th is the date set for former State Senator Pedro Espada Jr. and his son to go to court to face corruption charges
Espada and his son Pedro G. were indicted last December, and if convicted both face up to 10 years in prison on each of the five embezzlement charges, and five years for the conspiracy charge, as well as a steep fine. 
It is also said in the story that the US Attorney's office plans to file another indictment against Espada possibly for tax fraud. 
Espada's Bronx coop is now on the market possibly signaling that the former state senator could be in financial trouble.
