Ignominy continues for our notable neighbor

Sheldon SilverSheldon Silver may be able to carpool with his family to the federal courthouse this fall: his corruption trial is set to start on Nov. 2, the same day his son-in-law will be sentenced for running a $6 million Ponzi scheme for the past seven years.

The son-in-law, Marcello Trebitsch, pleaded guilty yesterday after being arrested and charged in April.

Trebitsch’s wife — Silver’s daughter — Michelle Trebitsch is the co-owner and managing partner of the fraudulent investment fund implemented in the scheme. She, however, has not been charged.

The NYT has the story.
