LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Former St. Landry Parish School Board Member Quincy Richard will be sentenced for his federal bribery convictions Feb. 4.

Richard was found guilty of bribery, aiding and abetting bribery and conspiracy to commit bribery Aug. 20 after a jury took 40 minutes to decide he was complicit in the solicitation of a bribe from a superintendent candidate in September 2012. The Daily World reports U.S. District Judge Richard Haik denied a subsequent motion for acquittal.

Along with fellow former school board member John Miller, Richard spent the summer of 2012 meeting with Assistant Superintendent Joseph Cassimere, who was then serving as the interim superintendent, in an attempt to solicit money from Cassimere in exchange for votes in the then-upcoming superintendent selection. Cassimere was one of five candidates for the position.
