Former state Senate leader reports to prison

New York’s disgraced former State Senate leader, Dean Skelos, will report to prison Tuesday, where he will start his four-year and three-month prison term after being convicted on corruption charges.

The 70-year-old Republican is expected to report to the federal prison at Otisville, New York, this afternoon.

Skelos’ son, Adam, will report to the federal prison in Danbury, Connecticut, to serve his four-year sentence.

Both men were convicted in July on charges of extortion, wire fraud and bribery.

Meanwhile, former state Assembly Speaker, Democrat Sheldon Silver, is still free while he appeals his corruption trial conviction and seven-year prison sentence.
