Chaim Deutsch was automatically expelled from his Sheepshead Bay City Council seat after pleading guilty to tax fraud last week, according to the Council Speaker.
“Based on our review of the charging document and Mr. Chaim Deutsch’s plea agreement, the Council has concluded that the office of the 48th Council District has been vacated under the operation of law,” said Corey Johnson in a Tuesday night statement. “Mr. Deutsch confessed to a crime and violated his oath of office. He is no longer a member of the City Council.”
