A federal judge sentenced former Gwinnett County Commissioner Shirley Lasseter to 33 months in prison for her role in a scandal involving suspicious land deals, backroom payoffs and an undercover federal agent eager to dole out wads of cash.
Former Gwinnett County Commissioner Shirley Lasseter reports to a Florida prison today.
Lasseter will report to Federal Prison Camp Marianna in Marianna, Fla., to begin serving a 33-month sentence on a bribery charge. In May Lasseter resigned her commission post and admitted accepting $36,500 from an undercover FBI agent in exchange for her vote on a Boggs Road real estate development.
Three others also have pleaded guilty to bribery and other charges in the ongoing federal corruption investigation.
