Al Parish in hospital ahead of sentencing

As convicted economist Al Parish faces up to 30 years in prison at a sentence hearing next week, he was placed in the hospital Thursday because of trouble breathing, according to his attorney.

From ABC News 4:

Parish’s attorney Andy Savage says his client was admitted to MUSC this afternoon, the timing of his health problem is very interesting considering his sentencing hearing is set for next week.

Savage is also pushing for a shorter sentence for Parish, saying seven years is in line with similar fraud cases, News 4 reported.
