NEW YORK (WHEC) — Chris Collins' defense attorneys are considering filing motions to dismiss criminal charges in the congressman's insider trading case, according to The Buffalo News.

Collins, his son Cameron, and his son's intended father-in-law, Stephen Zarsky, are charged with fraud, conspiracy, and lying to the FBI. All three pleaded not guilty on Thursday at their arraignment on a superseding indictment.


Collins is accused of tipping off family members to sell stock in a drug company before the stock tanked. He was on the company's board of directors.

He's expected to go to trial in February.
