Here's an ironic fact about ex-County Commissioner Josephus Eggelletion's sentencing tomorrow before Judge Donald Middlebrooks: the judge wrote an ethics law about financial disclosure while working for Gov. Reubin Askew in the 1970s.
Filing his financial disclosure late was one of Eggelletion's many mishaps overs the years. He was fined by the state twice in the past for filing late and nearly missed the deadline this year too. When interviewed by the Miami Herald in August he explained: "I choose for it to be late."
Eggelletion faces up to five years in prison on a money laundering charge. Sentencing guidelines call for between 30 and 37 months. He will learn his fate at a 10:30 a.m. hearing Friday in West Palm Beach but the judge will likely let him surrender next month.
