Former Luzerne County Judge Michael T. Toole Benefits from Recent U.S. Supreme Court Ruling

According to an August 2, 2010 article by Dave Janoski in the Scranton Times-Tribune, the recent United States Supreme Court decision ruling the honest services fraud statute unconstitutionally vague has erased a fraud count that could have sent former Luzerne County Judge Michael T. Toole to federal prison for up to 20 years. According to the article, the former judge is now only facing a tax evasion count that could result in a lesser sentence.
