Sandy Anabi case: Judge grants Mangone pre-sentencing vacation

NEW YORK Disgraced lawyerattorney Anthony Mangone will get some time in the sun before he’s sentenced on federal corruption and bribery charges.

Just when he will be sentenced remains undetermined — but his vacation is a done deal.

U.S. District Judge Colleen McMahon on Tuesday granted Mangone, 39, permission to travel to Palm Beach, Fla., the day after Christmas for a five-day stay.

“The purpose of the trip is to visit family living in the Palm Beach County area,” Mangone’s lawyerattorney, James DeVita, wrote in a letter to McMahon. The judge promptly approved the request.

Mangone was indicted in January 2010 with former Yonkers Councilwoman Sandy Annabi and onetime city GOP boss Zehy Jereis, but later pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate with prosecutors.

His sentencing date has not been set.
