Kerik faces tax evasion, conspiracy counts
by UPI

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Bernard Kerik, a former New York Police Commissioner, turned himself in to authorities Friday to face arraignment on corruption charges, the FBI said.

A federal indictment against him contains 16 counts, including charges of tax evasion, conspiracy and making multiple false statements to the White House and other federal officials when he was being considered a candidate as Homeland Security Secretary, CNN reported.

"We will not hesitate to pursue any public official who has violated his oath," said Michael Garcia, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York.

Kerik, 52, is a longtime friend and ex-protege of former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a Republican presidential hopeful. During a campaign stop in Iowa Thursday, Giuliani said his support of Kerik was "a mistake."

President George Bush nominated Kerik to be secretary of homeland security. Kerik withdrew his name from consideration after allegations surfaced that he employed a nanny with questionable immigration status.

Bronx District Attorney Robert Johnson investigated allegations that Kerik traded payment on repairs to his apartment for favorable consideration.

He pleaded guilty in 2006 to accepting thousands of dollars in gifts while he worked as city corrections commissioner. He was fined $221,000 and avoided jail time.
