Guilty plea in politically-charged photo case
JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI- There was a guilty plea from one of the people charged in the case of photographing U.S. Senator Thad Cochran's ailing wife in a political race that's extremely heated.
John Mary of Hattiesburgh admitted to conspiracy to commit a computer crime.
He got five years probation and promised to cooperate with police in the investigation.
If Mary successfully completes his probation, the charge may be wiped from his record.
Two others face charges in the case and a third person, Mark Mayfield, committed suicide.
Mayfield backed a Tea Party candidate who lost to Cochran in a hotly contested primary.
