The Never Ending Story
Adelphia founder and disgraced former cable elder statesman John Rigas and his son, Timothy, apparently are not going down without a fight. They have petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to hear an appeal of their earlier fraud convictions.
In late May, a New York court upheld 22 of 23 counts of the July 2004 conviction, which sentenced John Rigas to 15 years in prison and Timothy to 20 years.
