Sheriff Pleads Guilty to Federal Corruption

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) _ The law license of former Broward County Sheriff Ken Jenne has been suspended by the Florida Supreme Court's chief justice as a result of Jenne's guilty plea to federal corruption charges.

The suspension is a prelude to a hearing and decision by the full high court on whether Jenne should be disbarred, the presumed penalty for a felony conviction, or receive a lesser penalty.

Jenne, also a former state senator, is serving a sentence of a year and a day in a federal prison camp that he received November 16th in Fort Lauderdale after pleading guilty to tax evasion and mail fraud conspiracy.

The charges involved a series of questionable transactions including getting money and favors from sheriff's vendors and payments made on his behalf for a Mercedes-Benz convertible.
