George Moses Trial Witness Pleads Guilty to Perjury

A Penfield man has pleaded guilty to perjury connected to the fraud case against former Rochester Housing Authority chair George Moses.

Federal prosecutors say during Moses's trial, contracting firm owner Francis Cardinell recanted earlier statements to the FBI and the IRS that he paid Moses about $45,000 in kickbacks for contract work at the Authority's charitable organization.

Cardinell will be sentenced in December.

Moses was convicted on 28 fraud related charges and was sentenced to 6 1/2 years in prison.
