The case against the husband of Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks will move forward when a grand jury is convened to hear his testimony, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said Wednesday.

Brooks’ husband, Robert Wiesner, is one of four men charged this month in an alleged bid-rigging scheme through projects connected with local development corporations in the county.

The attorney general’s office agree to drop the charges against Wienser last week after he wasn’t called to testify, but the charges will be formally presented again once the case is officially dismissed.

“We look forward to and expect to reconvening the grand jury to accept the testimony of the one defendant who has requested to testify,” Schneiderman said in Albany at a news conference. “Tt is unusual for people who are targeted for people to testify because it often works against their self-interest. We welcome that testimony.”

The AG’s office has come under criticism from some Republicans, in part because of the political ramifications of the arrests. Brooks ran unsuccessfully last year for the House seat held by Rep. Louise Slaughter.

Still, the problems at LDCs preceded the Brooks-Slaughter election and were even raised as issues during the campaign.

“It’s clear there is an ongoing, very substantial set of fraudulent schemes in Monroe County,” Schneiderman said. “The facts speak for themselves in the papers that we filed and the facts will speak for themselves at trial.”

As for a press aide being suspended after giving a heads up to the media that the arrests were eminent, Schneiderman said, “Obviously we felt the statement to the press was mishandled.”
