Former Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos and his adult son Adam Skelos pleaded not guilty to a six-count federal indictment on Monday, setting up a trial that may not come until next year, our NY1 colleagues report.

Due to the volume of evidence, the trial may not be scheduled until early next week. Skelos’s phone had been tapped by federal investigators for 2-1/2 months.

Dean and Adam Skelos were indicted Thursday on a half-dozen charges of corruption and fraud.

Both men surrendered to federal authorities earlier this month as the Nassau County Republican was charged with using his official position to help his son’s business interests, including allegedly providing no-show jobs for Adam as well as steering a sewer contract to a company that employed him.

Skelos resigned as majority leader in the days after his arrest and was replaced by Suffolk County Sen. John Flanagan.
