Quincy Richard denied freedom during appeal

Updated:

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A federal judge has denied a request by former St. Landry Parish School Board member Quincy Richard Sr. to remain free while appealing his 33-month prison sentence on bribery charges.

The Advocate reports U.S. District Judge Richard Haik shot down Richard's request Wednesday to push back the March 4 deadline he faces to report to federal prison. Richard was convicted last year of soliciting a $5,000 bribe from a candidate for superintendent to secure the board member's vote of support.

A federal grand jury indicted Richard and former board member John Miller in 2012 for soliciting bribes of $5,000 each from superintendent candidate Joseph Cassimere in return for their vote to give him the job. Cassimere did not get the job.
