HARRISBURG (AP) - A woman who formerly worked for a high-ranking Pennsylvania state House member is facing 9 to 23 months in jail after being sentenced for her role in an investigation of the misuse of public resources for campaign purposes.
A Dauphin County judge on Friday also ordered Jill Seaman to serve 72 months of probation and pay $50,000 in restitution and a $21,000 fine.
The 59-year-old Seaman is the first Republican to be sentenced in the 5-year-old state investigation. She was convicted in November of 40 counts along with her onetime boss, former state Rep. Brett Feese of Lycoming County.
Sentencing for Feese, once a member of the House Republican leadership team, is next month.
Seven other people connected to the caucus, including former Speaker John Perzel, await sentencing.
