Perp Walk Update: Larry Langford Sentenced to 15 Years in Prison

I missed this story last month ... but, I thought it proper to provide closure to the Perp Walk story that we've shared with you in the past.

Former Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for his October bribery conviction.

Langford was convicted on 60 federal counts of bribery in a pay-for-play case last year. He was elected mayor in 2007 and was stripped of his office upon his conviction.

What a sad ending to a man's political career and reputation. A cautionary tale for all African Americans that acheive success and think that their shyt no longer stinks.
