ALL of the on and off ramps have ice in them. Approach them slowly and carefully. If you speed onto an offramp or try to turn suddenly, you will slide and crash.

Georgia Man in Beef Plant Scam Completes Sentence

Georgia Man in Beef Plant Scam Completes Sentence

JACKSON, MS -- A federal judge has terminated the supervised release for a Georgia businessman snagged in a beef plant scandal and convicted of making an illegal campaign contribution to former Mississippi Gov. Ronnie Musgrove.


Nixon Cawood Jr. was charged in the investigation into Mississippi Beef Processors LLC, which closed three months after it opened in 2004, sticking Mississippians with $55 million in state-backed loans.


Cawood was sentenced in 2009 to eight months in prison and three years of supervised release.


U.S. District Judge Michael Mills ended the supervision Tuesday, saying Nixon has paid his fines and met the conditions of his sentence.


Cawood was an executive at The Facility Group of Smyrna, Ga. The company managed the plant's construction.
