19 May 2012. Former longtime Pennsylvania House Democratic leader Bill DeWeese is out on bail days after he began serving a 2 1/2-to-five-year prison term for corruption.
A spokesman for the State Correction Institution in Camp Hill confirmed late Friday that DeWeese was released on bail.

DeWeese began his sentence in Dauphin County Prison in Harrisburg on Monday.

In February, a jury convicted DeWeese of conspiracy, conflict of interest and three counts of theft for using public resources for political purposes.
