Judge Throws Out Evidence in Case Against Former Spring Valley Mayor

A judge has made a new ruling in the ongoing case against former Spring Valley Mayor Noramie Jasmin, who was arrested in 2013 for allegedly accepting bribes in exchange for political favors. Earlier in March Jasmin and her attorney filed papers with the court requesting that evidence obtained by the FBI through cooperating witness Moses Stern, who wore a wire and recorded conversations with the former Mayor, be thrown out. Defense Attorney Benjamin Ostrer argued that Stern led his client in the conversation to make her appear guilty of some crimes. On Wednesday a federal judge ordered the audio of Jasmin allegedly telling Stern to eliminate absentee ballots in a certain election may not be used in court since it is not related to the indictment filed by prosecutors. According to the judge the other audio tapes presented as evidence can be used during the trial.
