Corbett’s team wants Veon behind bars for at least 12 years

Prosecutors want former House Minority Whip Mike Veon to sit in jail for at least a dozen years. They’ll ask for a 12 to 17-year sentence during Veon’s Friday hearing, according to a Post-Gazette report. The Office of the Attorney General is seeking a 19 to 24-month sentence for former Veon aide Annamarie Perretta-Rosepink, as well.

The news comes on the same day Brett Cott appeared in court to request a reduction in his 21 to 60-month prison sentence.
