Vince Fumo Sentenced to Five Years

Just after 3 p.m. today, former state Senator Vince Fumo—who was convicted of more than 130 counts of corruption-related charges—was sentenced to 61 months in prison. Fumo had previously been sentenced to four years and change in the pen before that decision was vacated. The judge who ruled on the case asserted that prosecutors overcharged Fumo. [Inquirer]
