Attorneys for Joan Orie Melvin accuse prosecutors of launching a ``venomous personal attack'' on the former state Supreme Court justice because they believe she should have been sent to prison in the wake of her campaign corruption conviction.
Melvin's lawyers argue she shouldn't be made to send letters of apology to every judge in the state while she appeals her conviction and sentence. The apology letters were part of her sentence, along with three years' house arrest, community service and a fine.
The Superior Court has already delayed the apology letters. Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala Jr. argued in court documents that if the apology requirement is voided altogether, the sentencing judge should be given a chance to send Melvin to prison.
