Vincent L. "Uncle Vinny" Leibell, III (born August 6, 1946) is a convicted felon and a former politician from Putnam County, New York. After a long career in the New York State Legislature, Leibell ran for and was elected County Executive-elect in Putnam County in 2010, but resigned prior to taking office following an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation which led to his arrest and subsequent conviction on Federal corruption charges.
His resignation was in connection with a Federal plea arrangement stemming from two felony convictions relating to kickbacks Leibell had received while using his position as State Senator to steer taxpayer monies towards two local non-profit agencies which he controlled. He is currently serving a 21 month prison sentence at the Federal Correctional Institute in Loretto, Pennsylvania.
