Former Ouachita Parish Sheriff Royce Toney is expected to be sentenced  today in a federal court in Monroe. Toney plead guilty to nine  misdemeanor counts of unauthorized access of a protected computer on  August 2nd. Former U-S Attorney Harry Rosenberg says he expects Toney  will spend little or no time in prison. Under the sentencing guidelines, Toney could only serve a maximum of one  year in federal prison, plus a fine of up to 100-thousand dollars. Toney  was also facing several felony counts, but those charges were dropped as  part of a plea deal. Rosenberg says the plea deal was a key to Toney receiving a lighter sentence.

Governor Jindal spent a great deal of time this year out-of-state, campaigning for Republican candidates like Mitt Romney. Now  that the election is over, what's next for the Governor? U.L.-Lafayatte  political science professor Pearson Cross says Mr. Jindal will focus  more attention on Louisiana. Jindal will be leaving office in 2015, but his political ambitions probably won't end there. Cross says Mr. Jindal has no private sector  experience on his resume, and that's something important to conservative  Republicans. Cross expects he'll seek to remedy that.
