A long-time state senator in New York faces up to five years in prison after he was convicted Wednesday of lying to the FBI.
Tom Libous got a visit from federal agents in 2010, asking how his son Matthew got hired at a law firm. They were investigating whether the senator had used his influence as the second-ranking Republican to get his son the job. (Video via Tom Libous)
The jury found Libous guilty of lying during that encounter. The conviction will cost him his seat.
