Famed anti-tobacco lawyer Richard "Dickie" Scruggs is headed to prison for five years for conspiring to bribe a judge.
Scruggs was sentenced Friday in a Mississippi federal court. He was also fined $250,000.
Scruggs gained fame in the 1990s by using a corporate insider against tobacco companies in lawsuits that resulted in a $206 billion settlement. That case was portrayed in the 1999 film "The Insider."
Scruggs was indicted in November along with his son and a law partner after the FBI secretly recorded conversations about a plan to bribe a state court judge.
Scruggs and former law partner Sidney Backstrom pleaded guilty to conspiracy in March.
