Disgraced State Sen. Dean Skelos and Son Adam Found Guilty of Corruption

Posted by Melinda Rosati | Jul 17, 2018 | 0 Comments

Manhattan Federal Court jury found Dean Skelos and his son guilty Tuesday of using his powerful position as state Senate majority leader to strong-arm businesses into giving his son no-show jobs.  

Skelos, who once was one of the “three men in the room” who controlled Albany, along with the Governor and Assembly speaker, will do time alongside his troubled son, Adam.

They faced bribery and extortion charges and were both found guilty on all counts.

It was the second time the father-son duo were convicted. Dean Skelos, 70, was sentenced in 2016 to five years in prison and Adam Skelos, 36, got 6 1/2 years. They were retried due a subsequent Supreme Court decision that changed the criminal elements of corruption.
