United States v. David Zachary Scruggs

Scruggs pled guilty to the crime of misprision of felony, which the information described as an honest services fraud crime. He has now filed a motion to vacate his conviction pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2255. On September 16, 2010, District Court Judge Neal B. Biggers ordered the government to respond to the defendant’s motion to vacate by October 16. On October 15, the Government filed for an extension, citing the need to submit an “outline of the government’s proposed response” to the Dept. of Justice for approval in order to ensure DOJ responses are “uniform and consistent nationwide.”
