Former PA Sen. Jane Orie To Appeal Prison Sentence

Watch out for the Orie sisters!  Yet another example of political corruption by PA elected officals.  Jane’s sister Joan was recently suspended from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court for alleged campaign corruption charges.

Former state Sen. Jane Orie has filed notice that she’s appealing her 2½- to 10-year state prison sentence for campaign corruption and forgery charges.

Orie’s two-page notice to the state Superior Court does not specify why she’s appealing the sentence she received in June following her conviction on charges that she used her state-funded legislative staff to do political fundraising and campaign work. Orie was also convicted and sentenced for introducing forged documents in her defense before a judge declared a mistrial during her first campaign corruption trial last year.

Orie was tried again and convicted in March.

She resigned her Pittsburgh-area Senate seat in May and has also lost her law license.

The 50-year-old Republican is serving her sentence at the State Correctional Institution-Cambridge Springs, about 90 miles north of Pittsburgh.
