Despite pleading guilty to securities fraud, Cameron Collins will not go to jail, unlike his father, disgraced former congressman Chris Collins who will spend 26 months in federal prison. Jerry Zremski, Washington Bureau Chief for The Buffalo News, was inside the Manhattan courtroom during Thursday's sentencing. In making the determinations, U.S. District Judge Vernon Broderick, Zremski says, pointed to the former congressman as the instigator in the fateful decision to share inside information in order to avoid massive financial losses for his family.
