A central figure in Pennsylvania's legislative corruption case — former lawmaker Mike Veon — is scheduled for sentencing in Harrisburg.

The former state House Democratic whip is to appear Friday before Dauphin Court Judge Richard Lewis.

Veon stands convicted of 14 counts of theft, conspiracy and conflict of interest, involving the illegal use of public resources for political campaigning. Veon was one of 25 people arrested in the investigation into alleged corruption among Democrats and Republicans in the Legislature.

The state attorney general's office is seeking a 12- to 17-year prison sentence for Veon.

Veon's lawyer says he will ask for a sentence that includes probation but no prison time.
