Scruggs legal fallout continues, five years later

While his father awaits the 5th Circuit’s ruling, Zach Scruggs ponders his next steps after that panel rejected his appeal.

He did not plead guilty to the bribery scheme but for failing to report that Balducci met illegally with Lackey.

Even though the arrests occurred five years ago, Wilkie says people still ask him about the story, especially about Dickie Scruggs’ release.

“They come up, even people I don’t know, and say they knew so many of the characters,” Wilkie notes.

He terms the saga, not yet over, “an enormous Mississippi drama.”
