Fumo Heads To Halfway House

08.06.13 | Bob Price

The 70 year-old has been incarcerated in Ashland, Ky., since 2009, when a jury convicted him of stealing $4.2 million from the state, a museum and a South Philadelphia neighborhood group. The wealthy lawyer and banking heir had been in Pennsylvania politics for 30 years, controlling hundreds of jobs in and out of government. His legal battles are far from over. All three of his adult children are estranged, and the youngest has sued over Fumo's use of her trust fund. The IRS is seeking millions, and federal prosecutors want him to pay another $800,000 in restitution above the $3.5 million he's paid so far.
