Court Overturns DeWeese’s Restitution Sentence

Bill DeWeeseThe Superior Court ruled former state House Speaker Bill DeWeese will not pay the $116,668 in restitution following his conviction on corruption charges.  

The ruling is the third such ruling by the appeals courts in Pennsylvania removed restitution order from the sentencing of a former House official.  Last month, the Court ruled that former House Speaker John Perzel would not have to pay $1 million in restitution.  

The Court ruled that since Pennsylvania cannot be considered the victim, DeWeese cannot be ordered to pay restitution to the state.

DeWeese was convicted on conspiracy, theft and conflict of interest charges.  The ruling does not remove the convictions.
