The Mississippi Republican Party says it will not keep contributions from high-profile attorney Richard "Dickie" Scruggs.

Scruggs faces up to five years in prison after pleading guilty Friday to a federal charge of conspiring to bribe a state judge.

Mississippi GOP chairman Jim Herring said Monday that Scruggs had donated $27,250 to the state party from 2002 to 2004. Herring said the GOP will give that money to Boys and Girls Clubs around the state.

Herring called on other political organizations, including the Democratic Attorneys General Association, to give up money it received from Scruggs.
