Former Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos and his son Adam were indicted Thursday on a half-dozen counts of extortion, bribery and fraud by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara’s office.

The charges leveled against the two men stem in part from the elder Skelos’s alleged efforts to use his influence as a top state lawmaker in the Republican-led Senate to help the business interests of his son.

The indictment released on Thursday is in large part the same from the criminal complaint unsealed on May 11, when both Dean and Adam Skelos surrendered to federal authorities. However, a new claim against Skelos is added to include the accusation that a medical malpractice insurance company gave Adam Skelos what amounted to a no-show job that was simultaneously lobbying Dean Skelos.

Both men remained accused of placing undue influence on developers in order to secure favorable business as well as campaign contributions.

Dean Skelos, a Nassau County Republican, resigned his post as majority leader of the Senate a week after his arrest, ceding the position to Suffolk County lawmaker John Flanagan.

Skelos retains his seat in the chamber as he fights the corruption charges.

Skelos has maintained his innocence in the days after his arrest and has insisted he will be exonerated.

The arrest of Skelos made him the latest state lawmaker to fall under a cloud of public corruption. This legislative session alone has been rocked by the unprecedented arrest of both top lawmakers arrested on corruption charges: In January, now-former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver was arrested in a separate case and charged with extortion.
