LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Three former district attorney's office employees are scheduled for sentencing in August for their roles in what officials describe as a pay-for-privilege bribery scheme.
The Advertiser reports a federal judge scheduled sentencing for Aug. 8 for the three, who pleaded guilty in federal court to participating in the bribery scheme while they were employed in the district attorney's office in Lafayette.
Barna Haynes, the former office administrator and secretary to District Attorney Mike Harson, and former assistant district attorney Greg Williams pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to accept bribes.
Denease Curry, a former secretary, pleaded guilty to one count of misprision of a felony for failing to report the bribery scheme.
