Wintry Mixed Precipitation Causes Slow and Slick Travel Through the Night

A rapid transition from snow to sleet will continue across the region this evening with an ultimate switch to freezing rain in most locations before midnight.  With the fast sleet transition snowfall totals will be reduced with many areas seeing 1"-3" with localized amounts of 3"-6" in the southern Adirondacks, Lake George-Saratoga Region, Vermont, the Berkshires, and the Taconics prior to midnight with up to 0.10" of a glaze of icing on top of the snow.  The storm is a fast mover with the most if not all of the precipitation over by or shortly before daybreak.  Slow and slick travel conditions should be expected through the pre-dawn hours with much improved road conditions by the Wednesday morning commute.

You Paid For It: Charged with perjury, turned informant

Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 10:22 PM EDT

Two Bronx Assemblymen had their political careers take a hit last month.

Former Assemblyman Nelson Castro was forced to resign, as part of a plea deal, after the US Attorney’s Office says he helped them catch his colleague, Eric Stevenson, accepting a bribe. Castro was wearing a wire, in Albany, during the past four years he served.

In trouble himself after pleading guilty to perjury in a separate matter Castro was said to have cut a deal with the US Attorney’s office that would grant him immunity from going to jail. Part of the deal forced him to resign.

Meanwhile Eric Stevenson, D-Bronx, is said to have taken $22,000 in cash in exchange for fast tracking the opening of an adult day care center.

Current members of the assembly told Capitol Correspondent Pat Bailey it is “ a little troubling” knowing one of their colleagues worked under cover for the feds while still collecting a paycheck and voting on legislation.

“People don't vote for individuals to go to the Senate and Assembly to be informants they go there to be there to stand up for them legislatively, develop legislation and to be their voices,” said Assemblyman Jim Tedisico, R-Glenville. “This individual was not a voice for the people he was a voice for law enforcement.”
