Judge Sentences Skelos To 4 Years In Prison

10.25.18 | Brandon Dickson

Former New York state senate leader Dean Skelos was sentenced Wednesday.

He and his son Adam's original convictions were rejected after the U.S. Supreme Court narrowed public corruption law.

In July, they were retried and convicted of extortion, wire fraud, and bribery.

Skelos didn't have anything to say leaving the courtroom Wednesday, but his wife said, "We'll get through it."

Meanwhile, Adam Skelos was sentenced to four years behind bars.
