Skelos daughter-in-law arrested in family dispute

ROCKVILLE CENTRE, N.Y. (AP) — The daughter-in-law of former state Senate leader Dean Skelos has been arrested following a dispute at her Long Island home.

An attorney for Ann Marie Skelos said Thursday that she pleaded not guilty to two misdemeanor charges of attempted criminal mischief and criminal mischief in Nassau County District Court. She was released without bail.

Skelos is the wife of Adam Skelos.

He and his father pleaded not guilty earlier this year to federal corruption charges.

Attorney Dennis Lemke says Ann Marie Skelos was arrested outside her Rockville Centre home on Wednesday night following an argument.

She allegedly broke the eyeglasses of her 21-year-old nephew, David Hassett, during the scuffle.

Lemke says his client has no prior arrest history, and added Adam Skelos was in court to support his wife. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
