U. S. District Judge Henry Wingate reduced former Mississippi attorney Paul Minor's federal prison sentence to three years during a hearing yesterday, WLBT reported yesterday.
Former Harrison County judges John Whitfield and Wes Teel's sentences were also reduced to 18 months.
In 2007, a federal jury convicted Minor and the judges of honest services fraud. Minor's sentence was originally 11 years. In 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court announced it would not hear Minor's appeal.
