Appeals court upholds former councilman's theft conviction



PITTSBURGH (AP) — An appeals court has upheld the sentence of a former western Pennsylvania councilman convicted of improperly using $50,000 from the trust fund of an elderly widow with dementia.

The 65-year-old Upper St. Clair resident argued at his oft-delayed trial that he had approval to use the money in 2006 and 2007.
