Former state Supreme Court Justice Joan Orie Melvin filed an appeal today in the Superior Court of Pennsylvania of her conviction on public corruption charges earlier this year, court records show.

Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge Lester G. Nauhaus sentenced Ms. Orie Melvin two weeks ago to serve three years' house arrest in her Marshall home after she was found guilty in February of six criminal counts, including three felonies.

He also ordered her to pay $55,000 in fines, as well as more than $70,000 in additional costs including a $25-per-day fee for an electronic monitoring system.

A hearing on the appeal has been scheduled in the appellate court for July 19, according to court records.
