Take the case of former prosecutor and judge Bobby DeLaughter. Fifteen years ago, he successfully prosecuted Byron de la Beckwith in what is arguably one of the most important criminal cases in Mississippi history. Today, he was sentenced to 18 months for lying to the FBI in one the seemingly endless corruption investigations involving Dickie Scruggs. (see prior coverage here and here).
