NEW YORK - Jury deliberations are set to start in the corruption retrial of former state Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos.
Attorneys wrapped up closing arguments Thursday.
Skelos and his son, Adam, were found guilty on bribery, extortion and corruption charges in 2015.
But, the convictions were overturned after a Supreme Court decision narrowed the legal definition of political corruption.
Skelos is accused of using his political power to get his son paid for no-show jobs.
The defense team admits Skelos sought financial help for his son from companies with business before the state.
But, Skelos told a jury there was no corrupt deal and that the men he asked to offer his son a job were long-term friends of his.
