BOSTON - A federal grand jury has indicted former state Sen. Dianne Wilkerson on 23 new counts of mail and wire fraud that accuse her of taking money from a businessman in exchange for supporting a proposed development in Boston.
Wilkerson already faces eight counts of attempted extortion under the color of official right and one count of conspiring to extort for allegedly accepting $23,500 in bribes from undercover agents she thought were businessmen.
According to an indictment released Tuesday, another businessman made a series of payments to Wilkerson ranging from $500 to $1,200 between 2002 and 2006.
Prosecutors say Wilkerson eventually filed legislation that would have given a long-term lease to the man's company.
A message left Tuesday for Wilkerson's attorney, Max Stern, was not immediately returned.
