Boston Marathon-bomber friend’s family sue agents over death

Attorney John Colette discusses with reporters the almost 20 year prison sentence handed down to former state corrections commissioner Chris Epps, by U.S. District Judge Henry T. Wingate, at the federal courthouse in Jackson, Miss., Wednesday, May 24, 2017. Epps pleaded guilty in 2015 to money laundering and filing false tax returns in connection with nearly $1.5 million in bribes he took from contractors doing business with Mississippi prisons. Prosecutors had recommended that Epps spend only 13 years in prison because he implicated others in the bribery scheme but Wingate sentenced Epps to 19 years, seven months. (AP Photo/Rogelio V.
