Some charges dropped in LDC case
Rochester, N.Y. -- A judge has dropped some of the charges against one of the men accused in the bid rigging case involving local development corporations.
Five counts of falsifying business documents and conspiracy against Dan Lynch were dropped because they fell outside the statute of limitations.
"He's got 25 counts he's facing," says Daniel Schiano, Lynch's attorney. "Any time you get these pared down to make it more workable, that's what we're trying to do. This is a minor victory; we have a lot more work to do."
The judge promised another decision soon about whether to order a new grand jury proceeding for Robert Weisner, the former secretary director at the Monroe County Water Authority and husband of County Executive Maggie Brooks.
