Assemblyman Nelson Castro resigns over alleged bribery case

ALBANY -- Through a press release Assemblyman Nelson Castro, Bronx, says he will resign his position. Castro worked as a "cooperating witness" in the alleged bribery scandal involving Assemblyman Eric Stevenson, D-Bronx, according to a US Attorney's Office report.

"I continue to cooperate with State and Federal authorities in this prosecution and in other investigations," said Castro.

The US Attorney's Office says Assemblyman Stevenson took cash in exchange for expediting the opening of an adult day care center and drafting legislation to put a moratorium on future day cares in hopes to keep the competition out of his district.

The complaint also states Stevenson expedited the construction of a gas line to the facility, through "his contact" at Con Ed, so it could open sooner.

A second, unnamed, assemblyman was involved according to the report. That assemblyman initially was part of the scheme but later worked with the US Attorney's Office as a "cooperating witness". In exchange for his work the unnamed assemblyman, known as "Assemblyman 1" struck a deal where he will not be prosecuted but he must resign.

"Assemblyman 1" is Nelson Castro.

Assemblyman Stevenson's office said they have no comment on the matter.
