Scruggs Redux: Transcripts, Reactions and Editorials

The Sun Herald has the Dickie Scruggs sentencing transcript in plain text, Folo has a partial transcript from the Backstrom sentencing. The Clarion-Ledger has reactions from various parties, including Judge Henry Lackey. Alan Lange at Y’all Politics criticizes the questionable post-sentencing comments of AG Jim Hood and former AG Mike Moore. The Sun Herald points out that the minimum security Pensacola prison Scruggs has requested is the same one that houses Paul Minor whom Scruggs testified against; the Bureau of Prisons is unlikely to allow both men in the same facility. Alan Lange’s editorial is outstanding, and the Sun Herald’s editorial is also worthwhile.
