State Senator Thomas Libous has been indicted for allegedly lying to the FBI about using his position to get his son a job.
Prosecutors say the charge stems from an investigation into whether Libous steered business to a law firm in exchange for a high-paying job for his son, Matthew.
The indictment says he told FBI agents he didn't know how his son got the position, or that an outside lobbying firm was paying part of his salary.
Matthew Libous is free on $50,000 bond.
He's facing federal tax charges for allegedly filing false returns and obstructing the IRS.
Some of those charges are related to his income while at the law firm.
