Joey Langston and the prosecutors describe how Joey came to plea

There are four affidavits: One each from AUSAs David Sanders (who is now a Magistrate Judge) and Robert Norman, and an affidavit from Joey Langston. They make fascinating reading, and are designed to rebut any inference that Farese had a conflict of interest in representing both Langston and Zach Scruggs; the reasoning is that Langston never said a word that suggested that Zach Scruggs was involved in Wilson, the case involving DeLaughter and Ed Peters that became the basis for Scruggs II.

What’s interesting is the meetings that these affidavits add to the chronology, giving us a background (and sworn-to) account of the plea negotations between Langston and the Government.
