Plea deal for Yonkers attorney guilty of extortion, bribery

A politically connected Yonkers attorney has agreed to cooperate with authorities as they investigate claims that he helped funnel thousands of dollars to a local lawmaker to sway her council vote on a controversial development project. Anthony Mangone pleaded guilty to extortion, bribery and other charges last November for his role in funneling $30,000 to former Councilwoman Sandy Annabi to sway Annabi's vote. Mangone's plea deal, recently unsealed by a federal judge, requires that he fully cooperate with the judge's office, the FBI, the IRS and any other law enforcement agency. It also states that he must testify truthfully before the grand jury at any trial. Annabi was due to go on trial in June, but the case was recently postponed until 2012.
