Former Water Department Commissioner Pleads Guilty To Bribery

A former water department commissioner in Mount Vernon, New York has pleaded guilty to bribery.

U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara has announced that former commissioner of the Board of Water Supply of the City of Mount Vernon Anthony Bove pleaded guilty to soliciting a $10,000 bribe from an employee of the water department, and lying to federal law enforcement officers when interviewed during the investigation. Officials say that in the spring of 2015, while serving as the water commissioner, Bove solicited a $10,000 bribe from a Water Department employee in exchange for approving the employee’s promotion. Officials say Bove, a North Salem resident, pleaded guilty Tuesday in White Plains federal court.  He will be sentenced June 29.
