Former Buildings commish Eric Ulrich expected to face criminal indictment this week: reports


Former city Department of Buildings Commissioner Eric Ulrich is expected to be hit with criminal charges this week as an investigation into him by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office wraps up, according to published reports.

Ulrich resigned from the administration last fall, just days after investigators with the Manhattan DA’s office served him with a search warrant, seized his cell phone and interviewed in connection with an illegal gambling probe. At the time, Adams’ spokesperson said Ulrich — in his own words — stepped down to “avoid unnecessary distraction” for the administration.
