Judge brings DeLaughter’s supervised release to an end
Published: November 16,2012
ABERDEEN — Bobby DeLaughter, a former circuit judge caught up in Mississippi’s judicial bribery scandal, is no longer on post-prison supervised release.
U.S. District Judge Glen H. Davidson’s order was filed Tuesday. The government did not oppose DeLaughter’s request.
In a motion filed in U.S. District Court in July, DeLaughter said he had “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.
