Defense presents Kaloyeros as a job creator, not a criminal

Jun 19, 2018

Among those on hand in federal court in Manhattan Monday for the opening of the trial of Dr. Alain Kaloyeros was Jimmy Vielkind, Capitol bureau chief for Politico.com. In a morning interview with WBFO, Vielkind discussed a defense strategy which painted Kaloyeros as an administrator who cut through red tape and followed established practices in creating jobs throughout the state. Prosecutors accuse Kaloyeros and his co-defendants of bid-rigging in securing lucrative state development contracts.
