Former Hillsborough County Commissioner Kevin White is a popular guy. That's the word from his attorney, Grady Irvin Jr., who filed a motion in federal court this week telling the judge 12 to 15 people wanted to speak on White's behalf when he is sentenced on bribery and corruption charges March 12. In all, Irvin said up to 35 people want to attend the sentencing. Irvin told the judge the half hour set aside for sentencing will not be enough time to let everyone speak. So he asked for an additional 90 minutes. "It is becoming clear ... there are persons who are passionate about Mr. White's life as a whole," Irvin said in his motion.
