Richard asks judge to toss his conviction

Posted:

A Saint Landry Parish school board member convicted last month on federal bribery charges has asked a judge to toss his conviction, arguing in court filings this week that he thought a cash-stuffed envelope he pocketed in 2012 contained official school board correspondence rather than money.

That claim is made despite testimony at Quincy Richard Sr's trial that he told an FBI agent he planned to use the cash for new rims and tires for his Corvette.

A federal jury on August 20th voted unanimously to convict Richard on bribery charges for soliciting a $5,000 payment from superintendent candidate Joseph Cassimere in exchange for voting to give Cassimere the job and lobbying other board members to do the same.
