Law Partners Sentencing Scheduled for Friday

Trial Lawyer Dickie Scruggs and his law partner Sidney Backstrom are set to be sentenced this Friday.

The two men pleaded guilty earlier this year for attempting to bribe a circuit court judge in a case linked to legal fees.

They're expected to receive between 2 to 5 years in prison and they could lose their licenses to practice law.

Scrugg's son Zach will be sentenced on July 2nd.  He faces up to three years in prison for his plea of failing to report a felony.
