HARRISBURG — State prosecutors are urging a judge to sentence former state House Democratic whip Mike Veon to additional prison time for his second corruption conviction.
In a sentencing memorandum filed Friday in Dauphin County Court, the Attorney General’s Office urged that the former Beaver County lawmaker be given a sentence that exceeds guidelines. That could add more than six years to the six- to 14-year term he is serving for a related corruption conviction.
Veon, 55, was convicted in March of 10 counts of conspiracy and theft on charges that he misused taxpayer grants directed to his nonprofit, the Beaver Initiative for Growth (BIG). He is scheduled to be sentenced Wednesday.
