Dean Skelos motion denied by courts

NEW YORK, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The corruption trial against former State Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos and his son is still set to start next month.

This comes after a federal judge in Manhattan rejected pre-trial motions to throw out charges or evidence in the case. Dean Skelos was the state’s most powerful republican when he was arrested in May.

An indictment accuses him of using his position for financial gain and pressuring others to funnel money to his son in exchange for his support on legislation.

Skelos says he and his son will be vindicated.
