Sansom Case Still Alive

January 4th, 2010 by Mike Vasilinda

The prosecutor who charged former House Speaker Ray Sansom with official misconduct is not giving up.

The charge was dismissed by a circuit judge. The state appealed, and was told last week there was no basis for the appeal. Now, State Attorney Willie Meggs says he has an undisclosed plan to bring Sansom to justice, but has not says what he has in mind.

The bottom line is the former Speaker of the House was building an aircraft hangar for Jay Odom to use over in the Destin airport, and he was using mine and your money to do that with,” Meggs said. “And theres just something inherently wrong with that. Im not going to rest until I either get kicked out of court or he gets convicted of that wrong conduct.

Sansom is accused of improperly steering six million dollars for a Destin aircraft hangar that developer and GOP contributor Jay Odom wanted to use for a corporate jet business. Sansom has claimed innocence and said the money was for an emergency operations and training center for Northwest Florida State College.
