PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - Three former employees of a Panhandle sheriff's office have been found guilty of racketeering and grand theft.
Jurors found former Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office employees Michael Coup, David Yacks and Sandra Norris guilty on Tuesday. The three were connected to an employee bonus kickback scheme involving former Sheriff Charlie Morris.
Morris is serving a federal prison sentence after pleading guilty on charges of using Homeland Security money to fund lavish Las Vegas gambling trips, purchase cars and buy gifts for a girlfriend.
