FBI Says Mississippi Parole Office Took Bribes

A former Mississippi parole officer pleaded guilty to a federal charge that he took bribes from a parolee he was supervising.

Andra Smith of Anguilla entered a guilty plea of soliciting bribes from a parolee before U.S. District Court Judge Tom Lee after waiving indictment.  He admitted to taking $2,400 from a man he was supervising to allow him to leave Mississippi for work.

Smith now faces up to 10 years in prison, up to a $250,000 fine and repayment of the bribe money.
