A former Albany lobbyist with close ties to the administration of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was sentenced Friday to five years probation.
Todd Howe, 58 years old, pleaded guilty in 2016 to eights criminal counts and agreed to cooperate with federal prosecutors. He admitted to participating in a bribery scheme involving Joseph Percoco, a former senior aide to Mr. Cuomo, and a bid-rigging conspiracy involving the Democratic Governor’s signature Economic-Development Program.
