Victor Rivera, who led one of the largest homeless shelter operations in New York City, has been sentenced to more than two years in prison for bribery. Manhattan federal Judge Sidney Stein handed down a sentence of 27 months for Rivera Monday for receiving $1.2 million in kickbacks from contractors that were hired by the non-profit that he created.
Rivera will serve his time in federal prison for schemes he initiated from 2013 to 2020.
