From the NY Post:
It seems that Hiram Monserrate’s teeth are as rotten as his reputation.
The prison-bound ex-pol has won an extra month of freedom for desperately needed dental work on his diseased choppers, court papers reveal.
Monserrate — who was sentenced to two years in the slammer for corruption — went to his dentist in mid-January “complaining of recent, severe pain,” defense lawyer James Neuman wrote.
Tooth doc Louis Shapiro performed repeated root canal procedures, but Monserrate still needs four more crowns installed, according to the Manhattan federal court filing.
“Dr. Shapiro opines that this treatment is necessary and must be done ‘expeditiously’ in order to avoid additional damage,” Neuman said.
“Upon information and belief, it is very unlikely that this type of work would occur while Mr. Monserrate is in custody.”
Judge Colleen McMahon gave Monserrate until April 11 to start serving his time behind bars.
