Former General Sessions Judge Casey Moreland was sentenced to 44 months in prison and forced to pay $18,000 in restitution.
Moreland was first arrested on federal obstruction of justice charges last March and resigned from the bench in April. He was also charged with tampering with a witness and destruction of records during a federal investigation.
Moreland was being investigated for allegedly violating anti-corruption statues by soliciting and extorting things of value, including sexual favors from people with whom he had close personal relationships, in return for performing official acts that benefited those people.
