Men who bilked lottery sentenced in Pennsylvania

The two men who rigged the Pennsylvania Lottery in 1980 were sentenced to prison and ordered to return part of the more than $1 million bilked from the state.

Former Pittsburgh TV personality Nick Perry was sentenced to three to seven years in prison, fined $3,000 and ordered to make restitution totaling $35,000. Former lottery official Edward Plevel received a two-to-seven-year sentence, was fined $1,000, and was ordered to pay $2,500 to the state.

The two were convicted of rigging a publicly exhibited contest, perjury, conspiracy, and theft after masterminding a record $3.5 million payout.
