Fumo resentenced from 55 to 61 mos. in prison

Disgraced former Pennsylvania State Senator Vince Fumo will get six more months added to his prison term.

Fumo will now spend 61 months in jail, up from 55 months.

Federal prosecutors had appealed Fumo's initial 4-year sentence.

The defense cited Fumo's age and health problems as reasons not to extend his prison time.

Fumo was convicted for defrauding the state and two non-profit organizations out of more than $2 million.
