RICHARD “DICKIE” SCRUGGS
BOBBY ( da dealer) DeLaughter. A wanna be federal judge. Uh, how come everyone in on the Gaylord conspiracy get what they want along with their freedom, yet, da Dealers contact with same held different results. What’s that?
Scruggs was indicted for attempted bribery in 2007 and in 2009. He pleaded guilty in March 2008, and again in February 2009. Scruggs was then sentenced to 5 years in prison on June 27, 2008 by U.S. District Judge Neal Biggers; and on February 10, 2009, Judge Glen H. Davidson sentenced him to 7 years for the second scheme, to run concurrently.
Scruggs first came to the public eye after successfully suing the asbestos industry on behalf of ill shipyard workers. He later represented the state of Mississippi in the tobacco litigation of the 1990s. Scruggs was a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon as an undergraduate at the University of Mississippi. He graduated from the University of Mississippi Law School in 1976, where he was a classmate of Mike Moore, a close friend who later became the Attorney General of Mississippi. Kings of Tort, by Alan Lange and Tom Dawson, released in 2009, documents the rise and fall of Scruggs.
U.S. Senior District Judge Glen Davidson agreed to grant bond after Scruggs argued that it would be wrong for him to serve more prison time if his current appeal were granted and his conviction overturned. Federal prison officials say Richard “Dickie” Scruggs will be released Dec. 12.
John Langworthy, former Clinton teacher and music minister charged with sex crimes may face a trial by jury in January. Langworthy, is accused of fondling boys aged 8-12 years old back in the 1980’s. These are the latest developments after plea bargain negotiations broke down.
Assistant District Attorney Jamie McBride told the Judge prosecutors engaged in prolonged negotiations with the defense attorney. McBride said they found out last week the plea bargain offer was not resolved. The state has withdrawn all offers, and will not make any more.
Langworthy, and his attorney Jeff Rimes, decided to instead challenge the statute of limitations on the case and will argue that motion in court December 18th, 2012
The District Attorney said Langworthy openly discussed the sex offenses with the congregation of his Clinton church, but now wants to fight the case. The statute of limitations has changed several times since the crimes allegedly occurred.
District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith pleding not guilty is his right and our obligation is to prove that he is guilty of that. Langworthy’s trial was set to begin Monday before Hinds County Circuit Judge William Gowan. He faces 8 counts of gratification of lust. Each count carries 10 years. ___________________________________________________________
