Huntley gets year and a day in jail

Former state Senator Shirley Huntley was hoping to avoid jail time, but that won’t be the case.

Huntley, now 74 years old, has been given a year and a day in jail after pleading guilty to stealing thousands from a not-for-profit that she founded.

Last month, it was revealed that Huntley had secretly taped a number of New York state lawmakers last year.

Those tapes have led to the arrests of several politicians and the ongoing federal probe of others.

Outside court Thursday, Huntley’s lawyer says she now fears for her safety.
