Nassau County Legislator Roger Corbin entered a plea of “not guilty” before Magistrate Judge William D. Wall of the U.S. District Court in Central Islip on June 9. In doing so, Corbin, who was indicted June 2 by a federal grand jury after turning down a plea deal late last month, will stand a trial by jury. His unsecured personal recognizance bond remains in effect.
According to the indictment, Corbin, 62, is charged with three counts of fraud for allegedly filing false federal income taxes for years 2005, 2006 and 2007 and one count of lying to federal agents. The Westbury legislator was arrested May 6 following a federal complaint that he evaded taxes on some $226,000 received over the aforementioned years from a New Cassel housing project developer and lied to special agents from Federal Bureau of Investigation and Internal Revenue Service when questioned about the monies.
Earlier this month, Corbin passed a polygraph examination administered by Joel M. Reicherter, a specialist in the field who currently works as an adjunct professor at several institutions including the Academy for Scientific Investigative Training and the American International Institute of Polygraph.
