THE BRONX - A city councilman whose corruption case ended in a mistrial will be allowed to distribute more than $350,000 to community groups next year.

According to the New York Post, Bronx Councilman Larry Seabrook will receive the annual allotment despite being accused of using those same types of funds to benefit his family and friends.

A federal judge declared the mistrial earlier this month after the jury deadlocked. Federal prosecutors said they would retry the case.
