After Langford, White remains the last in prison for Jefferson County sewer scandal

Following former Birmingham mayor Larry Langfordís sentence reduction and release Friday, one man remains in federal prison for the Jefferson County sewer bribery scandals that landed 17 contractors and county officials being sentenced to federal prison.

Gary White, 71, a former Jefferson County Commissioner, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for his 2008 conviction on charges he accepted bribes from a county sewer contractor. He is serving his sentence at the federal prison camp in Montgomery.

At his July 2010 sentencing, U.S. District Judge Scott Coogler also ordered White to serve two years of supervised probation after his release, pay $22,000 in restitution to Jefferson County, forfeit another $22,000 to the federal government and pay a $900 fee -- $100 for each bribery count for which he was convicted.

White is set to be released from federal prison on Aug. 1, 2019. But inmates are usually put into one of the BOPís reentry programs as their release date nears.
