MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A federal jury in Memphis deliberates today for a second day in the bribery trial of former state Senator Roscoe Dixon.
The jury is deciding whether Dixon took 95-hundred dollars in bribes from undercover F-B-I agents in return for legislative favors. His trial began May 30th.
The undercover operatives posed as lobbyists for a sham company called E-Cycle.
Dixon, of Memphis, is the first Tennessee lawmaker to face trial in the statewide corruption scandal. He and four other current or former lawmakers are charged in the case.
