Zach Scruggs is asking a federal judge for a chance to clear his name in a judicial bribery scheme that toppled his attorney father and other prominent attorneys and officials.

Zach Scruggs — son and former law partner of disgraced former litigator Richard “Dickie” Scruggs — was released from a halfway house in August 2009 after serving a 14-month sentence and lives in Oxford, Miss. He has filed a motion asking the court to vacate his conviction, eliminate the terms of his supervised release and refund the $250,000 in fines or fees he paid.
