Last week former Assembly Speaker and now former Assemblyman Sheldon Silver was found guilty on all seven counts in the indictment by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara.
Today it the State Senate's turn as former State Senate Majority Leader, and now former State Senator Dean Skelos along with his son Adam Skelos were both found guilty on all eight counts in the indictment by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara. It was not disclosed just how much time either Skelos would be facing in jail, but that will be decided at the sentencing that will be announced soon.
The U.S. Attorney has the following statement on the conviction of both Dean and Adam Skelos.
“The swift convictions of Sheldon Silver and Dean Skelos beg an important question – how many prosecutions will it take before Albany gives the people of New York the honest government they deserve?”
The only question now is -Who will be next?
