BUFFALO, N.Y.- Despite his resignation Sunday Dennis Gabryszak is still entitled to his state pension.

Gabryszak had been part of the state retirement system now for 31 years, dating back to his time working for the town of Cheektowaga and the village of Depew.

According to the state comptroller's office Gabryszak made just over $82,000 a year as an Assemblyman.

His pension would be based on his years in the system and the average of his top three years' salary.

Based on that, we estimate that his pension would be about $51,000 a year.

And in the ultimate of ironies, back in 2010 we interviewed Gabryszak about a bill he co-sponsored that would have stripped the pension of any legislator convicted of a felony.

Such a law passed the following year, but it only applies to legislators elected from 2011 on.

Gabryszak's attorney, Terry Connors, told 2 On Your Side earlier in the week that Gabryszak was planning on attending the first day of the state legislative session in Albany on Monday.
