Retired Pa. judge appeals fraud conviction

A retired Pennsylvania Superior Court judge is appealing his conviction on charges of falsely collecting $440,000 from insurance companies. Michael Joyce was sentenced Tuesday to three years and 10 months in federal prison. He was convicted in November of two counts of mail fraud and six counts of money laundering. Prosecutors say the suburban Erie man exaggerated neck and back injuries from an August 2001 crash to collect the insurance money.
