who acts to further the conspiracy is a co-conspirator,” said one of
Wilson’s attorneys, Vicki Slater of Jackson. “He called (Circuit Judge)
Bobby DeLaughter at Dickie’s request.”
DeLaughter has not been
charged with a crime but is being accused of ruling in Scruggs’ favor
in exchange in 2006 for a potential appointment to the federal bench.
Lott has acknowledged that he called DeLaughter about a judgeship, but
decided along with Sen. Thad Cochran to appoint someone else.
The day after Lott’s call, Slater said, DeLaughter sent Lott a resume.
