Default Ray Nagin gets 10 years in prison

http://www.cnn.com/2014/07/09/justic...html?hpt=hp_t2

(CNN) -- Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin was sentenced to 10 years in prison Wednesday in a bribery scandal that rocked the city, according to the Times-Picayune newspaper and CNN affiliate WDSU.

In February, a jury found him guilty of taking hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes and other favors from businessmen looking for a break from his administration.

Of the 21 counts against him, he was convicted of 20.

The former mayor maintained his innocence even after the conviction.

Prosecutors argued that Nagin was at the center of a kickback scheme in which he received checks, cash, wire transfers, personal services and free travel from businessmen seeking contracts and favorable treatment from the city.

A January 2013 indictment detailed more than $200,000 in bribes to the mayor, and his family members allegedly received a vacation in Hawaii; first-class airfare to Jamaica; private jet travel and a limousine for New York City; and cellular phone service. In exchange, businesses that coughed up for Nagin and his family won more than $5 million in city contracts, according to the indictment.



remember him from the New Orleans disaster?

to be convicted on 10 years....wow. Usually they plea or get off without jail time. he must've been crooked as fukk to get 10 years

Russians can be also. WindbagNYC kept up with the olympics just so he could chronicle Putin's involvement. It was powerful and convincing stuff like his big ass political thread he keeps remaking bc no one gives a shit about his 47 paragraphs and it falls to the back pages of the OTC.

Former New Orleans mayor C. Ray Nagin who became the face of a desperate, drowning city during Hurricane Katrina was convicted Wednesday on charges of accepting bribes from city contractors while in office.

Nagin, a Democrat, was found guilty by a federal jury on 20 of 21 criminal counts, including bribery, conspiracy and wire fraud. He was acquitted on one count of bribery.

No doubt, but I don't think it will be 10 years. If he rats on enough people he'll do 30 mos at a country club fed prison in the mountains.

His "chocolate city" comment should have netted him 5 years in prison at least.


Anyone know the ratio of Democrat politicians in jail or in trouble with the law to Republican ones??
