Disgraced former NYPD commissioner Bernie Kerik will be back in a federal courtroom in White Plains Tuesday afternoon to try to get bail. Kerik pleaded guilty last week to eight corruption-related counts. Kerik admitted he never reported tens of thousands of dollars in cash and gifts he had received while working as a city official.
Kerik had his bail revoked after Judge Stephen Robinson accused the former police commissioner of improperly leaking confidential materials that were going to be used at trial.
After Kerik pleaded guilty, the judge said he would consider granting Kerik bail since that the possible tainting of a jury pool from improper leaks is no longer an issue. Tears rolled down Kerik's face when Judge Robinson said at sentencing he would take into consideration Kerik's years as a public servant.
