Following two eventful days of resentencing hearings capped off by an allocution in which he showed little remorse, former state Sen. Vincent J. Fumo received six additional months in prison on Thursday, at least partly because of a series of e-mails he sent from prison in which he complained that he had been unjustly convicted by a “dumb, corrupt and prejudiced” jury and expressed a desire to exact vengeance on several foes.
Fumo was sentenced in July 2009 to 55 months in prison for fraud, obstruction of justice and tax convictions after a federal judge announced that he had decided to depart down from a recommended 10-year prison term because of Fumo’s extraordinary public service.
