You Paid for It: Sheldon Silver Money

WRGB CBS News 6 Albany

The DoJ hasn’t decided where some of the money from Sheldon Silver’s forfeiture payment and fine totaling approximately $7 million will go. The $5 million forfeiture payment will go to the Department of Justice Assets forfeiture fund, and can be used to compensate victims and support specific law enforcement efforts. It is unclear whether New York taxpayers will see any benefit from the money.
