Guilty Plea in Political Bribery Ring

MANHATTAN (CN) - Health-care consultant Solomon Kalish pleaded guilty Wednesday to federal charges of bribing state Sen. Carl Kruger.

Kalish is the sixth and final defendant convicted in what the U.S. Attorney's Office called "a sprawling bribery scheme that ensnared a powerful New York State Senator, a lobbyist, two hospital CEOs, and a physician."

Kalish, 61, of Rockville Centre, faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for conspiracy to commit honest services fraud. He will be sentenced on May 22.
