Do They Serve Sushi in Prison?

On Tuesday State Senator Pedro Espada, Jr. and his son were indicted on federal charges of embezzlement:

The elder Espada and  Pedro G. Espada are accused of stealing more than $550,000 from Soundview Medical Center coffers to pay for expensive dinners, Broadway tickets and a  downpayment on a Bentley.

Looks like MYD’s protest in front of Espada’s REAL home in Westchester this past summer was quite prophetic!

If convicted, Espada could spend up to 55 years in his very own prison jumpsuit.
