Lawyers question Sandy Annabi's indictment on bribery

New questions are being raised about just how much money former Yonkers City Councilwoman Sandy Annabi allegedly took in bribes.

Annabi's defense lawyer wants to know why the democrat was originally accused taking $30,000 from a developer to change her council vote on the Longfellow Project. A new indictment lowered that amount to $20,000.

Lawyers for Annabi and former Yonkers Republican Party Chairman Zehy Jeries are also asking to see more of the evidence against them, including statements made by Anthony Mangone, the Hawthorne attorney who already pled guilty in the case.

The bribery and extortion trial has been pushed back to next February.
