Document: Hevesi parole hearing transcript

By Tom Precious

ALBANY -- State officials this morning released transcripts of former state Comptroller Alan Hevesi from his recent parole hearing in a central New York prison. Hevesi, who has served 19 months on corruption charges, last week was given parole and should be out of prison by the middle of next month. [Note: the redactions in the transcripts were made by the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision.]

In the hearing, Hevesi talks about everything from the goodies he received, why what he did was a crime, how he became arrogant as his positions of power went up the ranks of government, a run-in with a prison guard over the volume of a television and even an older abusive brother.

Hevesi, Alan 11R1334 Transcript - November 2012
