Many Lackawanna Countians have expressed dismay at the details of former Scranton School District Business Director Gregg Sunday’s plea deal. Ordered to repay the district the roughly $8,100 for automotive repairs he improperly billed to taxpayers and placed on three years probation, Sunday’s guilty plea allows him to keep his approximately $76,000-a-year pension thanks to a loophole in Pennsylvania’s pension-forfeiture laws (a loophole that erstwhile state senator and convicted federal felon Bob Mellow recently jumped though).

The state legislature is currently crafting a bill to at least partially correct the situation.
