Ex-Judge Stays Out of Jail While Helping With Fraud Cases
Former Greenwood, Miss., attorney and judge Bobby Fisher's cooperation with federal authorities has allowed him to remain free more than three years after pleading guilty to a mortgage scam.
Fisher says he continues to help U.S. attorneys on mortgage fraud cases and will be sentenced once those wrap up.
In January 2006, Fisher and former real estate agent Jim Pruett pleaded guilty to a scheme of falsifying mortgage application documents. Pruett was sentenced and died in prison in 2007.
Fisher said the current matters do not relate to his original case and do not concern local situations. He said he would like to speak further about what happened but cannot because of the ongoing investigations.
Fisher previously served as a Greenwood Municipal Court judge.
