Charles Walker: “case closed”

Former Democrat State Senator Charles Walker’s latest appeal has now gone down down in flames and Chief U.S. District Judge William T. Moore Jr., in a 68-page order, has stated that his arguments are out of time.

“The clerk of court is directed to close this case,’’ Moore wrote in the order filed last week.

Walker, an Augusta Democrat, was indicted in 2004 on 142-counts alleging numerous fraudulent schemes and tax evasion and convicted a year later.

Case closed.
