Cooper pays $50,000 fine
Prison-bound former Rep. Nathan Cooper, R-Cape Girardeau, has one less worry.
Documents filed today in U. S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri indicate Cooper has paid his $50,000 fine.
Today's documents said the fine was satisfied. The check was received by the court Jan. 15, according to court records.
Cooper pleaded guilty to immigration fraud charges and was sentenced to 15 months of prison, less than half of what the federal government had requested.
