Paul Minor sentencing hearing



The immensely successful Mississippi injury lawyer, convicted on 11 counts including racketeering and bribery, has plenty of supporters who've been sending letters to the judge by the sackful urging mercy. According to one, for Minor to have funneled money to friendly judges should be viewed in the light of "his early efforts to champion the rights of those in south Mississippi who were unable to access the legal system". Minor's father, the locally famous columnist Bill Minor, declared: "If he had any practice of bribing people, you would have known about it before this." Wouldn't that depend on how careful he was about covering the traces? U.S. District Judge Henry Wingate's decision on sentencing is expected soon.
