Another defendant may plead guilty in Cochran photo case

Richard Sager’s attorney, Tom Fortner of Hattiesburg, said negotiations on a plea deal are ongoing, but a final deal has yet to be reached.

Sager, a P.E. teacher and soccer coach, is charged with tampering with evidence, which carries a maximum penalty of two years in prison and/or $3,000 fine, and conspiracy, which carries a maximum five years in prison and/or a $5,000 fine.

Sager and three other McDaniel supporters were arrested in May and accused of conspiracy to photograph Rose Cochran in her nursing home room for a political hit-piece video on Thad Cochran.
