The selection of the senator’s son to oversee public contracts and funding — despite his connection to a federal fraud case — has some concerned.
A federal judge in Pittsburgh on Wednesday sentenced the power plant promoter to prison for stealing $5.7 million in federal stimulus funds.
Convicted fraudster’s court date is put off until April 18.
Civil Penalties May Top $12 million
Prosecutors could seek $17 million in addition to repayment, 3 years’ prison as judge delays fraudster's sentencing.
