With the federal corruption conviction of former powerful State Senate Majority Leader Joseph Bruno, Assistant U.S. Attorney William Pericak tells the Daily News, "I think it's clear that any way you stack the sentencing guidelines (it) will call for a sentence of imprisonment and the Justice Department typically recommends that the court follows the guidelines." Bruno, age 80, was found guilty on two counts—and each count is punishable by up to 20 years in prison. He has said he will fight the convictions.
