Ex-attorney Minor to appeal bribery conviction
Published: July 25,2011
JACKSON — Imprisoned former attorney Paul Minor has filed a notice of appeal for his convictions and sentence in the judicial bribery case that sent him and two former judges to prison.
Minor was first convicted of corruption charges in 2007 and was sentenced to 11 years. He was re-sentenced in June to eight years because the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals had vacated bribery convictions in 2009. The appeals court let some convictions stand, including racketeering for Minor.
Former Harrison County judges Wes Teel and John Whitfield also were resentenced to shorter terms.
In a court notice filed July 22, Minor said he would appeal U.S. District Judge Henry Wingate’s refusal to throw out the charges and his sentence.
