Judge Hopped On Corrupt CEO’s ‘Gravy Train,’ Feds Tell Jury

A Manhattan federal jury weighed obstruction charges against a Brooklyn state court judge on Thursday after prosecutors argued that the judge tried to stymie a 2018 probe into a corrupt credit union CEO after hopping on his “gravy train” and taking lavish perks.

A Brooklyn judge who received tens of thousands of dollars worth of pricey perks in her role as the chair of a major credit union tried to stymie a federal investigation into the troubled not-for-profit, lying to agents to cover up for a criminal pal, prosecutors said Tuesday.

Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Sylvia Ash found herself not on the judge’s bench Tuesday, but instead as the defendant on trial in Manhattan Federal Court.

“This case is about a coverup,”

prosecutor Alona Katz said during opening arguments to the jury.

“It’s about how she lied to a federal agent. How she knowingly signed a false document.”

The justice was indicted in 2019 on charges of obstruction of justice for allegedly deleting text messages and other evidence after learning that federal agents were investigating corruption at the state’s largest credit union, MCU.
