DeLaughter asks judge to lift post-prison supervision
Published: July 12,2012
ABERDEEN — Bobby DeLaughter, a former circuit judge caught up in Mississippi’s judicial bribery scandal, has asked a federal judge to end his post-prison supervised release.
In a motion filed in U.S. District Court in Aberdeen, DeLaughter says he’s “successfully completed” more than half of his supervised release term and has complied with all its terms.
DeLaughter pleaded guilty in 2009 to obstruction of justice in a corruption investigation involving multimillionaire and former lawyer Richard “Dickie” Scruggs. DeLaughter admitted lying to an FBI agent during the investigation.
DeLaughter was sentenced to 18 months in prison and two years’ supervised release. He began serving his sentence Jan. 4, 2010. His supervised release began April 22, 2011.
A judge has not ruled on the motion.
