The movie had a plot

In a repeat of proceedings Wednesday, United States Judge Malcolm Howard today sentenced the remaining Operation Rockfish defendants who took pleas in the police corruption case to serve prison time.

The first four defendants in Operation Rockfish to face sentencing after their pleas apologized to the court, saying they accepted responsibility for their actions.

United States Eastern District Attorney John Stuart Brice gives detailed reasoning for recommending proposed sentences to the defendants who accepted pleas in the Operation Rockfish police corruption case.

Lann Clanton and Ikeisha Jacobs are expected to get the most time of defendants in the Operation Rockfish police corruption case who took plea deals.

A Whitakers farmer was sentenced today to six months in prison in a fraudulent tobacco-selling scheme, the United States Attorney’s Office said in a statement.

One Operation Rockfish defendant is seeking a continuance in his sentencing next week and one found guilty is asking for a new trial.

United States Senior Judge Malcolm J. Howard has set two days aside for the sentencing of the remaining 14 defendants in the Operation Rockfish police corruption case.

With the only person in the Operation Rockfish police corruption case to not take a plea found guilty earlier this week, it will be soon now when the other 14 wise enough to take a plea will be sentenced.
