Ex Plaquemines sheriff sentenced to nearly 4 years in prison



The sentence is 46 months in federal prison for former Plaquemines Parish Sheriff Jiff Hingle.  A federal judge sent Hingle away for nearly four years for taking bribes.

Hingle resigned amid the investigation in 2011.

He was the sheriff for some 20 years.

Hingle admitted taking money from the businessman who got the contract to oversee jail construction in Plaquemines Parish.
