HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - A judge is giving two defendants in the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission corruption case an opportunity to have the charges against them dropped.

Dauphin County Judge Richard Lewis on Tuesday granted state prosecutors’ motion to allow 53-year-old Dennis Miller and 64-year-old Jeffrey Suzenski to enter a diversion program designed for first-time offenders.

If they stay out of trouble during two years in the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program, all charges will be dropped.

Miller, of Harrisburg, and Suzenski, of Pottstown, are charged with restricted activities. Miller also is charged with bid-rigging and conspiracy. Miller is a former executive for a turnpike vendor and Suzenski was a business consultant to another vendor.

A state senator and three former turnpike commission executives are awaiting trial in the “pay-to-play” scandal.
