As you've probably heard by now, a jury has convicted Thomas Wright on 3 counts of fraud and he will get at least 5 years and 10 months behind bars. He was also kicked out of the state legislature a couple weeks ago.

There was very little, if any, emotion from Wright and his family in court today. When the verdict was read he barely moved. After the first count was read he did slightly shake his head. His wife sat in the front row and barely moved as well without shedding a tear or showing any outright emotion. One of their sons looked similar sitting in the bench behind his mother.
His attorney, Doug Harris, said he did tell the family to expect a guilty verdict so maybe that's why they reacted the way they did. Harris did say his wife asked if Wright would go home during the appeals process and he told her no.
Wright guaranteed a victory on appeal by the way!
