The Clarion-Ledger Editorial, 8/29/7

In the case of the Mississippi Beef Processors Inc. fiasco, prosecutors told U.S. District Judge Neal Biggers in open court on Aug. 17 during the recent sentencing of MBP president Richard Hall Jr. that the judge could expect either additional plea bargains or additional federal indictments in the case.

For his role in the $55 million beef plant failure, Biggers sentenced Hall to eight years in federal prison and ordered him to pay $577,964 in restitution.
