Energy company executive draws 14-month sentence

ALBANY An energy company executive was sentenced to 14 months in prison Tuesday for his role in the corruption case that also resulted in the conviction of former top gubernatorial aide Joseph Percoco.

Peter Galbraith Kelly, 55, formerly an executive with Competitive Power Ventures, pleaded guilty in May to defrauding his employer, Competitive Power Ventures, by falsely claiming that Percoco, then Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo's executive deputy secretary, had obtained state ethics approval for his wife to work at CPV.

In addition to the prison term, Kelly was sentenced to three years of supervised release and ordered to pay $247,000 in restitution to CPV.

In a statement Manhattan U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman said Kelly "admitted to giving the spouse of one of the most powerful men in Albany, Joseph Percoco, a low-show job at his company in order to ingratiate himself and his company with Percoco. Many consider this type of behavior to be 'the way things are done' in government. But our office does not, and neither does the court."
