It looks like former Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford may soon be a free man. Federal Scott L. Scott Coogler today issued a ruling that reduces Langford’s prison sentence to time served. The disgraced lawmaker has served eight years of his sentence for taking close to a quarter million dollars in bribes. Congressional representative Terri Sewell lobbied for Langford to the Trump White House, and before that to the Obama administration. In a press release, she thanked those who heeded her call for mercy. Langford is suffering from end-stage pulmonary disease, emphysema, and heart failure.
