Former State Senate leader Dean Skelos plans to report to prison in January, following his federal corruption conviction.
Skelos has decided to not seek bail, pending his appeal. He's due to report to the Otisville Correctional Facility in Orange County on January 8.
Last month, the longtime Republican was sentenced to four years and three months behind bars, after he and his son were convicted of extortion, wire fraud and bribery.
