Lawyers say convicted ex-state senator continues to break laws

By Lia Eustachewich, New York Post

Crooked former state Sen. John Sampson continued to break laws after his corruption conviction and should be locked up for more than seven years, Brooklyn prosecutors said in a filing Tuesday.

The feds are referring to a court order that Sampson violated in March by appearing as an attorney on a family court case in Brooklyn — although he was suspended just days earlier from practicing law.

That earned Sampson disbarment last month.

Now, prosecutors say a prison sentence of 87 months is needed more than ever because Sampson “habitually acts as if rules and laws do not apply to him, or are at most inconvenient obstacles to be sidestepped,” the Brooklyn federal court filing says.
