(Harrisburg) -- Two former state House employees who were convicted of corruption along with their former boss Mike Veon have lost a pair of state appeals court decisions.

A three-judge Superior Court panel has upheld guilty verdicts against Brett Cott and Annamarie Perretta-Rosepink, both convicted with Veon after lengthy trial in 2010.

A jury convicted them both of conflict of interest, theft of services and conspiracy, but also acquitted them on multiple counts.

Calls seeking comment from their lawyers weren't immediately returned. The attorney general's office says it's pleased with the decisions but isn't making further comment.

Veon is a former Beaver County state representative who was once the second-ranking leader in the House Democratic caucus. He's currently in a western Pennsylvania state prison.
