The former head of a major Jewish charity will face charges he stole nearly a million dollars from the group.
William Rapfogel is being charged with grand larceny and money laundering.
He was fired from the Metropolitan New York Council on Jewish Poverty over the summer after the organization claimed it uncovered misconduct over its insurance policies.
The group receives millions of dollars in public money.
An investigation by the state state Attorney General and the state Comptroller led to the charges against Rapfogel.
The 58-year-old has longstanding ties to Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver.
His wife, Judy, is Silver's chief-of-staff.http://manhattan.ny1.com/content/news/189320/former-jewish-charity-head-charged-with-grand-larceny--money-laundering
