Mississippi newspapers are reporting that stiff sentences are expected for attorney Paul Minor and former judges John Whitfield and Wes Teel.
The Biloxi Sun-Herald reports that rulings by U.S. District Judge Henry Wingfield indicate Minor might receive up to 12 years for his conviction on various corruption charges. Sentences are expected to be handed down by the end of this week.
Charges in the Minor case were similar to those in the prosecution of former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman. And the Minor case involved charges of judicial corruption in a Deep South state, which means it is of great interest here at Legal Schnauzer.
