Scruggs urges leniency in motion to judge

Attorney Dickie Scruggs’ legal team filed a motion Wednesday afternoon that urges a federal judge to give Scruggs a sentence of 30 months rather than the maximum five years in prison he could serve for conspiring to bribe a state court judge.

The lengthy motion describes Scruggs’ young life and his achievements as a Navy fighter pilot and a lawyer. It also quotes from some of the 248 letters about Scruggs sent to sentencing Judge Neal B. Biggers Jr.
