WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Two South Florida doctors convicted of money laundering in connection with an illegal pill mill are appealing their cases.

Attorneys for Dr. Cynthia Cadet and Dr. Joseph Castronuovo filed notices of appeal Monday in West Palm Beach federal court. Their cases will be heard by a federal appeals court based in Atlanta.

The two doctors were among 32 people charged in connection with a string of pain clinics that authorities said were linked to the deaths of at least nine patients. A jury last year acquitted Cadet and Castronuovo of having roles in the deaths but convicted them of money laundering.

Cadet was sentenced earlier this month to more than six years in prison and Castronuovo got a year and a half. They are to report to prison in June.

    Some people are good at putting out fires. They're called firefighters. Others are good at baking pies. They're called bakers. But one man is excellent at both. He's a crusty firefighter, and we mean that in a really good way.
