Former NY senate leader Dean Skelos was in court seeking a new trial for himself and his son

Both were convicted in 2015 of public corruption.  

Skelos was sentenced to five years in prison.  His son received a 6 1/2 year sentence.

Lawyers for Skelos say a recent Supreme Court decision that vindicated the former governor of Virginia, should exonerate his client as well.

Both Sean Skelos and his son remain free while they appeal their convictions.
