The 58-year-old former director of the state's Prison Enterprises has been sentenced after pleading guilty to a federal charge of witness tampering.

U.S. District Judge Frank J. Polozola sentenced James H. Leslie, of Marthaville, on Wednesday to five months in prison and five months of home incarceration. Leslie also was ordered to pay a $10,000 fine.

Leslie's plea came in an ongoing FBI investigation of corrupt practices that allegedly occurred within the agency that produces farm crops and horses at the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola.
