News10NBC is following the investigation into possible corruption in Monroe County. On Thursday morning, the four men accused in the case including Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks’ husband, appeared in court. They're accused of bid rigging and corruption when it comes to contracts for county projects.
Back in January, News10NBC reported that a judge would rule on a request to force the state attorney general’s office to release internal memos and emails related to the public arrests of the men. The judge received those documents and is reviewing them.
On Thursday, the attorney for Robert Wiesner, the county executive’s husband, accused the state of dragging its feet.
James Nobles, Robert Wiesner’s attorney, said, “As you heard on the record, we filed motions that took about two weeks, it took them about two and a half months to respond. They were to turnover these emails on two prior occasions. They failed to meet the deadline. There’s nothing that I can assume here other than the fact that they're trying to drag this out.”
News10NBC has contacted the state attorney general's office for comment. We have not received anything yet. All four men are due back in court on June 12.
