New York state is dropping charges against former SUNY Poly President Alain Kaloyeros. However, he's still headed to prison for 3 ½ years on federal charges – and must pay a $100,000 fine.

Back in July, Kaloyeros was convicted of fraud and conspiracy for rigging bids with company executives he did business with. He was sentenced to prison on the federal charges earlier this month, following the sentencing of the executives.

In a statement to NewsChannel 13, an attorney general's office spokesperson said:

"Mr. Kaloyeros is now headed to prison for 42 months. We are pleased to have been able to contribute to the federal case and - knowing that it would have been virtually impossible for Mr. Kaloyeros to face any additional prison time even if convicted on the top count – we've moved to dismiss our case in order to protect limited state resources."
