Disgraced Politician To Be Released From Federal Medical Facility

WILKES-BARRE – A federal judge sided with defense attorneys in Luzerne County, allowing a former state senator to be temporarily released from a medical facility.

Attorneys for Ray Musto said the 85 year old has been diagnosed with advanced, stage-four cancer and he is only expected to live for a few more weeks or months.

A judge ordered that Musto report to a federal medical facility in North Carolina back in January, after the former state senator was found mentally incompetent to stand trial.

Federal prosecutors would not say if they expect Musto to ever face trial, or how much money was spent on this criminal case.
