Mellow to Receive Pension

(WBRE/WYOU-TV)   A former state senator from Lackawanna County who served federal prison time  will get his pension back.

The State Employees' Retirement System voted to return Robert Mellow's pension.

He had lost the benefit when he pleaded guilty in 2012 to conspiracy to commit mail fraud, but his lawyers argue his crime was 'not' listed under the pension forfeiture law.

 Mellow served in the state senate for 40 years.
