Whitmer charged with misprision of a felony

tim whitmerFormer Jefferson Parish chief administrative officer Tim Whitmer, a top aide to former Jefferson Parish President Aaron Broussard, has been charged with misprision of a felony (knowning about a crime, but not reporting it).

The bill of information for Whitmer indicates that he may testify against Broussard in an ongoing payroll fraud case.

Earlier this week, Broussard’s ex-wife, Karen Parker, pleaded guilty. She was indicted, along with Broussard and former Jefferson Parish attorney Thomas Wilkinson on 33 counts of conspiracy, wire fraud and theft of federal funds. Parker is said to be a cooperating witness in the case.

Prosecutors say the three conspired to get Parker hired by other parish workers as a paralegal supervisor, even though she wasn’t qualified for the job.
