Skrepenak sentenced to 24 months in prison, fine
Shock, tears and a vow to survive
Former Luzerne County Commissioner Greg Skrepenak showed up in court yesterday to receive his sentence for being a crook clutching a bible. The last few days his lawyer has thrown out all sorts of weak excuses why he shouldn't go to jail.
Go Easy On Me, Judge. I’m Really Likeable, And My Knees Hurt
Judge Richard Conaboy didn't buy any of it and gave him the longest sentence to date in Corruption Junction.
The reaction from his fellow Bond Brother Todd Vonderheid:
“I have no comment.”
The $70,000+ worth of bribes to Skrep must have played a part of the reckless spending and borrowing spree that Skrepenak and Vonderheid went on after they were elected after they helped shoot down the last Home Rule proposal. Trust us, they said.
That worked out well.
