Shortly after one in the afternoon, the White Plains Jury returned their verdict in the Christopher St. Lawrence bond fraud trial. Out of 22 charges brought against the Supervisor of the Town of Ramapo, the foreperson read Guilty on all but two of the charges. The only two counts on which he was not found guilty were one securities fraud charge related to the bond issue on April 20, 2011, and the April 18, 2011, wire fraud charge related to that same bond matter. Otherwise, he was found guilty of 20 felonies: securities fraud, wire fraud, and criminal conspiracy.
A witness in the courtroom noted that St. Lawrence was physically shaken as he stood and the guilty verdicts were read.
Sentencing is scheduled for September 28, at 10:30 am in the same White Plains courthouse.
