Ex-NY Senator Dean Skelos Gets Five Years In Prison For Corruption


Ex-state Senate majority leader Dean Skelos was sentenced today to five years in prison for using his political power to line the pockets of his do-nothing son Adam, who also was set to be sentenced to the slammer by Manhattan federal judge Kimba Wood, the NY Post reports.

The father-son duo were convicted in December of bribery, corruption and conspiracy after prosecutors with Manhattan US Attorney Preet Bharara’s office played tapes showing that the Long Island Republican strong-armed companies into paying his 33-year-old son more than $330,000.

“You sent a message that you, one of the three most powerful politicians in New York State, were in some measure corrupt,” Judge Wood said of Dean Skelos.

His son faces between 10 and 12 years behind bars.

  1. Contrast that to Rubashkin’s 27 years!!!
    He violated the trust of 11,000,000 New Yorkers with his crime and Rubashkin, if he committed a crime at all, did far less yet he’s been dumped in Otisville to rot for 27 years while this bum will likely be free in under 3 years!
    That’s justice in America!
