(New York, NY) -- The Joe Percoco corruption trial is on hold today in Manhattan after one of Percoco's lawyer's called out sick.
The defense team wrote the judge that Daniel Gitner was too ill to continue cross-examining the prosecution's star witness. Todd Howe claims to have helped the ex-Cuomo aide secure 300-thousand-dollars in bribes. Howe was arrested last Thursday night after testifying that he tried to scam his way out of paying for a stay at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel.
