From Ray Rivera:
City Councilman Larry B. Seabrook is expected to turn himself in to federal authorities in Manhattan on Tuesday to face a 13-count indictment accusing him of money laundering, extortion and fraud, a person briefed on the matter said.
Mr. Seabrook, a three-term Bronx councilman and former state senator, has been under investigation for months in relation to city contracts he helped secure for various Bronx nonprofit organizations with which he was closely affiliated. It was unclear Tuesday morning whether the charges in the indictment, expected to be unsealed later in the day, are related to his activity with the nonprofit groups.
A federal grand jury in recent weeks has also been looking at various contracts that Mr. Seabrook helped secure for a Bronx businessman and close associate, according to people familiar with the investigation.
