CENTRAL ISLIP, NY (TIP): Newsday reported March 8 that despite a late turnover of text messages recovered from the star witness against former Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano and former Oyster Bay Supervisor John Venditto, a federal judge said Thursday, March 8, the corruption trial is on schedule to begin next week.

Jury selection will take a day to 
complete on Monday and opening statements will be Tuesday, U.S. District
 Judge Joan Azrack said.

Testimony is scheduled to begin 
Wednesday, most likely with the key witness in the case, restaurateur 
Harendra Singh, who has pleaded guilty to bribing Mangano and Venditto.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Lara Treinis 
Gatz said she expected Singh to be on the stand for two days on direct 
examination, before the defense cross-examines him the following week.


Mangano has been charged with conspiracy, bribery, wire fraud
 and extortion. His wife, Linda, has been charged with making false 
statements, conspiracy and obstruction of justice. Venditto is charged 
with conspiracy, bribery, securities fraud, wire fraud, making false 
statements and obstruction of justice.

All three have pleaded not guilty and will stand trial together.
