Brett O. Feese was the Republican House Caucus legal counsel immediately prior to his indictment for his role in Computergate by the Pennsylvania Statewide Investigative Grand Jury. On November 8, 2011, Feese was found guilty by a Dauphin County jury on all 40 counts. (11-9-11 Williamsport Sun-Gazette, p. A-1 and A-5).
Along with John Perzel, and several others, Republican PA House Caucus legal counsel Feese was indicted on November 12, 2009, on 62 counts of participating in the 2006 Pennsylvania General Assembly bonus controversy also known as Computergate, a scheme that used state funds for private political campaigning.<Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reference>
On February 10, 2012, Dauphin County judge Richard Lewis sentenced Republican House Caucus legal counsel Feese to 4 to 12 years in state prison, an additional 2 years of probation, a $25,000.00 fine, and $1,000,000.00 in restitution for his role in the corruption scandal. Feese remained free on bail and was ordered to report to prison on February 28, 2012 to begin serving his state prison sentence if denied appeal bail by the appellate courts. (2-11-12 Williamsport Sun-Gazette, p. A-1 and A-5).
Feese surrendered his law license in November 2014 to the Pa. Lawyer Disciplinary Board almost 3 years after he had been sentenced to state prison.
