A computer technician faces several years in prison for his fierce loyalty to his former boss, convicted former Sen. Vincent Fumo of Philadelphia. Prosecutors are seeking a 30 to 37-month term for Leonard Luchko for destroying e-mail evidence as the FBI investigated Fumo. Fumo was convicted this year of using millions from the Senate and others to finance his extravagant lifestyle.

Luchko, of Collingdale, may not get much credit for his guilty plea because he remained loyal to Fumo and did not testify against him at trial.

Prosecutors won't object to probation or a reduced sentence for another computer technician in the case. They say Mark Eister of Camp Hill played a lesser role, showed remorse and testified against Fumo.
