Abbott to be sentenced October 11
Former Middlesex County Sheriff Guy L. Abbott is scheduled to be sentenced on Thursday, October 11, at 10 a.m. in Middlesex Circuit Court.
In August, Judge Paul F. Sheridan found Abbott guilty of two counts of bribery that occurred in 2004 and 2006 and involved two of his deputies.
Abbott was found not guilty of 21 other felony charges relating to expenditures that were also prosecuted by the assistant Virginia Attorney General in the same four-day trial in August.
Abbott, 56, served three terms as Middlesex Sheriff from 2000 through 2011. He lost the 2011 election.
