Authorities said that Cain failed to report more than $1.6 million in income to the IRS between 1997 and 2006, and owed unpaid taxes of more than $411,000.

Cain failed to file tax returns from as far back as 1991. The feds said that income that Cain received from 1991 through 1996 couldn't be quantified because of inadequate records.

Cain was a political consultant for more than 30 years and had been involved in more than 80 campaigns, but court papers filed yesterday suggested that Fumo was his patron.

The feds said that Cain's largest single source of income from 1991 to 2006 came from consulting services to the state Senate Democratic Appropriations Committee.

Fumo chaired the committee from 1985 until his indictment in February 2007.

The feds said that beginning in 1985, after Cain assisted the South Philadelphia Democrat in a successful re-election campaign, his company, Venture Analysis Inc., received a contract from the committee and continued to receive annual contracts through 2006.

From 2000 through 2006, Cain's firm received annual payments between $73,500 and $88,000 under the contracts, court documents said.

As part of the plea agreement, Cain stipulated that he conspired with Fumo and others to bilk the state Senate by submitting bogus invoices under a contract with the committee that resulted in payments to Cain for doing political campaign work in violation of state law.

Cain was not charged with misusing state funds, which resulted in losses of more than $200,000, but the uncharged fraud can be used to determine an appropriate guideline-range sentence, the plea agreement said.

Cain could potentially face 30 to 37 months behind bars under advisory sentencing guidelines.

Cain also agreed to pay restiution of $411,303 to the IRS for tax years 1997 through 2006, plus interest.

Cain's deal with the feds could bolster their case against Fumo.

Rather than rely on the testimony of other witnesses or records, the feds can now put somebody on the witness stand who was involved in every Fumo campaign since the mid-1980s, was part of Fumo's inner circle and who has admitted that he conspired with Fumo to defraud the state Senate.

Prosecutor John Pease said that because of the pending Fumo trial, it would be inappropriate to comment.

Peter Scuderi, Cain's attorney, declined comment. A plea hearing will likely be held in the next couple of weeks.

Fumo's lawyer, Dennis J. Cogan, and Fumo spokesman Gary Tuma also declined comment. *

The accident occurred at 12:18 a.m. and Mrs. Schinfeld was pronounced dead at Einstein at 3:55 a.m., police said. Her husband was treated for minor injuries.

Mrs. Schinfeld was seeking a doctorate at Temple University while also working at the Jefferson Center for Applied Research on Aging and Health at Thomas Jefferson University and serving as vice president of Congregation Adath Jeshurun in Elkins Park.

"She was a vivacious, ebullient, optimistic, just always upbeat person," said Rabbi Seymour Rosenbloom.

"This senseless act of drunken driving has taken a star from us," he said. "It's inexcusable."

In an e-mail to dozens of students, staff and faculty at Temple, Stephen J. Lepore, professor of public health, said Mrs. Schinfeld had been working in the Social and Behavioral Health Interventions lab and was "an integral part of the investigative team seeking to improve the life of cancer survivors and to reduce disparities in cancer among medically underserved minority populations."

Lepore, director of Ph.D. programs for the Department of Public Health, added: "In many ways, Sandy was like the lab 'mother,' always interested in what everyone was doing, offering a kind word and advice when needed, and constantly bringing in good things to eat."

In an interview yesterday, Lepore said Mrs. Schinfeld was likely to have completed her doctoral work this summer. He has inquired about whether the university can give her a posthumous honorary degree.

"She was getting real close," said her husband, who specializes in reproductive endocrinology and infertility at Abington Memorial Hospital.

Last week, he said, she was up until "1:30 every night" working on her dissertation.

They met 40 years ago while the two attended separate colleges in Connecticut.

The first time he saw her, he said, he told his friends, "I'm going to marry her," which he did four years later.

"To see them at a dance floor at a party," said Rosenbloom, "you could see the chemistry between them."

They raised two sons, Seth and Eric. Mrs. Schinfeld also is survived by her parents, Irv and Roe Gale, and a brother.

Schinfeld said his wife had delayed obtaining a doctorate because "family was her priority."

Laura N. Gitlin, director of the Jefferson Center, said Mrs. Schinfeld pursued her work and studies, as well as volunteerism, because she "was completely involved in the world. She really wanted to make a difference in people's lives."

A memorial service will be at 1 p.m. today at Congregation Adath Jeshurun, 7763 Old York Rd., Elkins Park.
