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.

    You know what they say about a man that has a big foot and long hair? Yeah, that they would make a really good Hercules. And while Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock has big feet, well he needed a little help in the hair department. Tonight The Rock is talking about how he became Hercules; everything from his feet, hair and to that fabulous body.
