    But for his position of power, Fumo was allowed to try his case in federal court. Little people are often prosecuted in Penna. state court where they are "political prisoners" because they disagree with corrupt judges and prosecutors. See Cmwlth v. Montelione and Cmwlth. v. Wrona for examples. The Cmwlth. charges Wrona with a crime which does not exist in the statutes or in the PENAL CODE.

    I sure hope the prosecution decides to appeal this ridiculously low sentence again. I can't imagine the judge scolding the prosecutors for filing so many charges against Fumo. It is akin to a person robbing 25 banks and then only charging that person with three robberies. I also believe the Judge is trying to make it very, very clear to all involved that judges and only judges have the power to sentence no matter what anyone else thinks. I find the judge's extremely light sentence suspect. It simply defies logic and most certainly should be questioned. Sign me: Larry Hohol-Author
