Investigators determined that the Beckermans allegedly owe $243,865.00 in back taxes, authorities said.The mayor is the the seventh government official arrested or convicted in Nassau County in the past two years. Her arrest follows the October arrests of Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano and Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto, the conviction of ex-Oyster Bay Town Planning Commissioner Frederick Ippolito in January 2016, the conviction of former New York State Sen. Dean Skelos (R-Rockville Centre) in December 2015, the recent arrest of Gerard Terry, an attorney who held numerous local government titles and the arrest of Hempstead Town Councilman Ed Ambrosino last week.Julianne Beckerman, who ran on the Concerned Taxpayers Party line, is currently serving her third four-year term as mayor of Muttontown, where she oversaw the creation of the village police department six years ago. The village recently scored a “D” for transparency in a report card compiled by the Press. Village officials did not respond to a request for comment on the mayor’s arrest.Adam Beckerman is a gastroenterologist with a practice in Seaford. The couple’s arrest followed a joint investigation between Nassau prosecutors and investigators with the state Department of Taxation and Finance.The couple was released without bail and surrendered their passports following their initial court appearance Thursday. They are due back in court May 30. They face up to 15 years in prison, if convicted.
Middlesbrough are close to bringing former England midfielder Stewart Downing back to the Riverside Stadium from West Ham. Boro have been in talks with the Hammers for some time over their former Academy graduate, who left the club for Aston Villa in a £12million switch in July 2009. It appears he is surplus to requirements under new boss Slaven Bilic and despite interest from other suitors, including Barclays Premier League club Sunderland – with whom Downing had a loan spell earlier in his career – the Riverside seems to be his preferred destination. Head coach Aitor Karanka and his players are currently training in Marbella with the club’s medical staff on hand, meaning there could be delay in processing medical checks before a transfer could be completed. Press Association Press Association Sport understands that no fee has yet been agreed between the clubs, but that discussions have progressed and there is an appetite to do a deal, meaning the 30-year-old could be on his way to Teesside within days. Downing has been left out of the Hammers squad for their Europa League clash with Birkirkara on Thursday evening.
