Former Florida Expressway Authority Board Member Must Report to Prison November 18

Orlando Sentinel reports that Scott Batterson, former board member of the defunct Orlando-Orange County Expressway Authority, must report for incarceration on Friday, November 18, following the denial of his appeal from a 2014 criminal conviction. Batterson will serve a 7 1/2-year sentence unless the court grants his attorney’s eleventh hour application for a sentence reduction. The report adds, “Batterson was found guilty of bribery-related charges, a blow for credibility of the [former expressway authority Batterson served]. The toll-road agency was revamped in 2014 as Central Florida Expressway Authority.”
