A federal jury last week found former Pennsylvania Sen. Vincent Fumo guilty on 137 counts of conspiracy, wire and mail fraud, tax violations, and obstruction of justice. He will face sentencing on July 13.
The former senator, who is 65, was found guilty of defrauding the state Senate, a nonprofit organization, and a museum. He was charged with improperly using funds, state employees, and contractors for his personal and political gain. Fumo served the first state senatorial district since 1978 until his resignation earlier this month.
