Former Westchester Independence Party head pleads guilty to felony charges

The former executive director of the Westchester Independence Party pleaded guilty to felony charges Wednesday.

Salvatore Lobreglio admitted his role in a scheme to cover up a friend?s crime. According to federal investigators, Lobreglio was involved with two disbarred lawyers who were caught up in fraudulent real estate deals. Federal prosecutors say since Lobreglio is a retired police officer, he should know that not reporting a federal crime is a criminal act.

The maximum sentence Lobreglio can get is three years and the minimum is six months. He is scheduled to be sentenced September 29.
