The Clarion Ledger reports that former Mississippi state judge Bobby DeLaughter will plead guilty tomorrow to a charge that he lied to the FBI during an investigation into efforts to improperly influence DeLaughter's handling of a fee dispute between Dickie Scruggs and his former co-counsel, Robert Wilson. (hat tip: NMissCommentor, y'all politics). DeLaughter's plea on this count should come as no great surprise to followers of the Good Ole (Miss) Boy Network scandals of the last couple of years, but it is a shocking fall from grace for the former Byron De La Beckwith prosecutor.
