Former NY State Senate Leader Skelos Won’t Seek Bail

November 26, 2018

NEW YORK (AP) — Former New York state Senate leader Dean Skelos (SKEH’-lohs) plans to go to prison in January for his federal corruption conviction.

According to Newsday , attorney Alexandra Shapiro says Skelos has decided not to seek bail pending his appeal.

He’s due to report to the Otisville Correctional Facility in Orange County on Jan. 8.

Shapiro says the decision is not a reflection on the merits of the appeal.

The longtime Republican power broker from Rockville Centre was sentenced to four years and three months.

He and his son were convicted in July of extortion, wire fraud and bribery.

Adam Skelos also is scheduled to begin serving his sentence on Jan. 8, at a low-security federal prison in Danbury, Connecticut.
