Disgraced former New Orleans Mayor Nagin due for sentencing

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 07/09/2014 - 17:04

Former New Orleans Mayor C. Ray Nagin leaves the courthouse in New OrleansBy Kathy Finn and Jonathan Kaminsky NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - Disgraced former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin was set to be sentenced by a federal judge on Wednesday on 20 corruption charges that could land him in prison for two decades. A jury in February found Nagin guilty of charges that include bribery, wire fraud, conspiracy, money laundering and tax evasion, all in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Nagin stirred national controversy with his erratic behavior after Katrina in 2005 breached floodwalls and inundated New Orleans, killing at least 1,500 people and leaving tens of thousands homeless. Prosecutors have asked for a stiff sentence of about 20 years, while Nagin's attorney, citing his lack of a criminal record, has urged leniency.
