State Recommends 12 Years In Prison For Mike Veon

Over at the Pittsburgh Post Gazette Tracey Mauriello reports that the AG Tom Corbett's office is recommending at least 12 years in prison for Michael Veon. Evidently they feel that 65 is a ripe age for Veon to regain his freedom for his transgressions with taxpayers' money.

In a sentencing memorandum filed Tuesday in Dauphin County Common Pleas Court, they asked for a 12- to 17-year sentence for Mr. Veon, 53, who they said "presided over a vast criminal enterprise specifically designed to utilize as many public resources as possible in pursuit of his political and campaign ambitions."

In a separate filing, they asked for 19 to 24 months imprisonment for Annamarie Perretta-Rosepink, who ran Mr. Veon's district office in Beaver Falls.

Sentencing is scheduled for Friday before Dauphin County Judge Richard A. Lewis.
