Vincent J. Fumo, the once-powerful, now-disgraced state legislator, was resentenced today in an extraordinary hearing to 61 months, six more than his previous sentence.
Fumo, 68, at one time the most influential legislator in Pennsylvania, was convicted in 2009 of misusing million in state funds. Though eligible for a sentence of at least 17 years, Fumo was given 55 months by U.S. District Judge Ronald L. Buckwalter, who handled the latest proceeding.
Before delivering the new sentence, Buckwalter reviewed e-mail that Fumo had sent from prison and declared that Fumo lacked a “true sense of remorse” and a “complete lack of respect for our legal framework.”
