As a judge in Philadelphia Traffic Court, Fortunato "Fred" Perri Sr. cultivated a public image as a tough guy. His nickname was "The Terminator" - a reflection of his supposed willingness to jail bad drivers. But for a favored few, Perri couldn't have been friendlier. "When you call, I move, brother, believe me," Perri allegedly assured a Southwest Philadelphia businessman said to be in league with him in the fixing of tickets. "It will be alright. Don't worry about it," he reportedly told the same businessman on another occasion, assuring him a ticket would be fixed, as promised.

Former Pennsylvania State Sen. Vincent J. Fumo was moved Wednesday from the Kentucky federal prison where he is serving a five-year sentence to a nearby hospital after doctors discovered three blockages during a heart checkup. Doctors have recommended that Fumo, 69, have heart bypass surgery to deal with one, in which an artery is 95 percent closed. Such a procedure would require him to be transferred to another federal prison near a hospital that is better equipped to perform the bypass, according to sources familiar with the situation who spoke on the condition that they not be identified.

Former State Sen. Vincent J. Fumo was back at his Kentucky federal prison Friday after a visit to a nearby hospital to investigate three heart blockages discovered during a checkup. Doctors have recommended that Fumo, 69, have heart bypass surgery to deal with one, in which an artery is 95 percent closed. U.S. Rep. Bob Brady (D., Pa.) said he had talked to members of Fumo's family, who said they were trying to determine where to have the surgery. Fumo's family had hoped to have him treated at a hospital in Philadelphia, but that will be difficult because he is a federal prisoner.

IMPRISONED former Philadelphia state senator Vince Fumo has new problems - heart problems. A source close to the onetime South Philly power broker says Fumo was recently taken from his low-security federal prison in Kentucky to a nearby hospital, where doctors found a 90 percent blockage in one artery. The physicians at Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital initially recommended a stent for the 69-year-old Fumo, according to the source, who requested anonymity, but are now looking at open-heart surgery.

Imprisoned former State Sen. Vincent J. Fumo may well have to pay an additional $800,000 in restitution, judging from the tenor of questioning Friday by appellate judges considering a government appeal of Fumo's financial penalty. The U.S. prosecutors who won his fraud conviction have challenged part of his punishment, in which the sentencing judge ordered a former Fumo aide to pay half the restitution to one of the victims in the fraud. U.S. District Judge Ronald L. Buckwalter ordered Fumo and the convicted ex-aide, Ruth Arnao, to split evenly the payment of almost $1.6 million owed to a South Philadelphia civic organization once known as Citizens' Alliance for Better Neighborhoods.

Jailed former Pennsylvania State Sen. Vincent J. Fumo, already embroiled in multiple legal battles, faced a new adversary Monday: His 23-year-old daughter, Allison. Allison Fumo appeared before an Orphans Court judge to ask that the court bar her father from taking action that her lawyers say would hurt her interest in a trust that was worth more than $2 million. Judge Matthew D. Carrafiello granted her temporary relief, saying no changes could be made to the trust's assets until a new judge was appointed.
