Geddings must serve 4 years in federal prison in Jesup, Georgia, as well as pay a $25,000 fine.[2] His conviction was vacated on Aug. 27, 2010. The government was ordered to return the $25,000 fine and $500 special assessment Geddings paid. When a conviction is vacated, it's as though it never happened. Source: St. Augustine Record.
