Scruggs Nation: I Fought the Law and the Law Won version

How much time for rebuttal witnesses?

Dickie Scruggs, as you may recall, is to receive five years in prison as part of his plea agreement, and Backstrom two-and-a-half, but Zach Scruggs’ guilty plea came after what might loosely be termed the “open enrollment” period for plea bargains, and for plea bargains after the last date set from them before trial, the Court does not necessarily feel obligated to accept any terms worked out with prosecutors. In return for Zach Scruggs’ plea to misprision of a felony, prosecutors are recommending a sentence of probation. We’ll see if Judge Biggers goes with that or something harsher.
