Walker wants sentence set aside

Former state Sen. Charles Walker is challenging his federal conviction and prison term.

This time Mr. Walker is representing himself in a request to vacate his sentence.

In a court filing earlier this week, Mr. Walker alleges a vast conspiracy involving Republican opponents and others led to what he deems a bogus prosecution, and his 2005 conviction and 10-year prison sentence.

Mr. Walker, who served in the state House and Senate for two decades, was convicted of 127 felony counts of conspiracy, mail fraud and filing a false tax return for his charity football event, the CSRA Classic.
