DALLAS – Former Hinds circuit judge Bobby DeLaughter appears to have moved into the custody of what the U.S. Bureau of Prisons calls New Orleans CCM.
Wednesday, DeLaughter was listed “in transit” and thought to be moving to a half-way house before his release from federal custody in April.
The so-called New Orleans CCM, which is described as a community corrections facility, bears the address of 4211 Cedar Springs Road, Dallas, Texas.
DeLaughter, 56, of Terry has been held in a McCreary, Ky., prison since early 2010 after pleading guilty to lying to federal investigators looking at whether he was bribed for favorable considerations in the lawsuit, Wilson v. Scruggs.
DeLaughter insists he was never bribed. He admitted to inappropriate conversations with his former boss, Ed Peters, who was hired to intervene in the lawsuit.
