A federal judge has scheduled former state Sen. Robert Mellow‚??s sentencing on mail fraud and tax evasion charges for Nov. 30.

Mellow, 70, of Peckville, pleaded guilty in May to charges related to his illegal use of senate staff to perform campaign work for himself and his political allies. He also admitted to under reporting his income on his 2008 tax return.

One of Mellow‚??s attorneys, Sal Cognetti, had asked U.S. District Judge Joel Slomsky to schedule sentencing for some time in December due to a month-long vacation Cognetti is scheduled to take. The U.S. Attorney‚??s office objected, requesting a date some time in November.

Mellow is scheduled to appear before Slomsky at the federal courthouse in Scranton at 9:30 a.m.
