Former Congressman Chris Collins has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit securities fraud and lying to the FBI. Each of the two charges carry a penalty up to five years in federal prison.
Now, the people Collins once represented are left without leadership. New York’s 27th Congressional District covers all of Orleans, Genesee, Wyoming, and Livingston counties and parts of Erie, Monroe, Niagara, and Ontario counties.
Collins admits he told his son a Biotech company where they both owned stock would soon tank because of a failed clinical trial.
Will Dorfner of Geneseo says he is satisfied with the outcome of the case so far.
