SCRANTON -- A former Lackawanna County Commissioner had yet another day in court, but this time it was in an attempt to get himself a new trial.

In 2011, Robert Cordaro was convicted of corruption and sentenced to 11 years in prison. So far, he's served about half of that.

This is now the second time Cordaro has asked for a new trial. This time, he claims prosecutors didn't have enough evidence.

A judge in Federal Court in Scranton heard arguments from both sides Wednesday and will make a decision at a later date.

    Oh please! He’s already served half his time. Suck it up and get over it. Finish your time and move on. Nothing but a waste of time and tax dollars!!!
