A Staten Island lawyer is facing charges for criminal impersonation and election law violations following a NY1 report.

They are said to have contained misleading information about politicians and people running for political office.

Luthmann has been in jail for about a year on federal charges related to a business he had selling scrap metals.

He will now face a judge on Staten Island this evening.
