Federal prosecutors are expected to announce criminal charges against state Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos and his son as early as Monday, sources told the Daily News.
Prosecutors from U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara’s office have been investigating the Long Island Republican and his son, Adam Skelos, regarding a possible conflict of interest and violations of federal corruption statutes.
The two could be hit with corruption and other charges tied to a lucrative contract awarded to an Arizona-based engineering firm that once employed Adam Skelos, 32, as a consultant, a source familiar with the matter told The News.
The company, AbTech, won the contract even though it was not the low bidder, and the feds were trying to determine whether Sen. Skelos played a role.
A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s office declined to comment on the matter.
The FBI did not respond to a request for comment on Friday.
