Former Mayor Ray Nagin Indicted on 21 Counts


A federal grand jury on Friday charged former Mayor Ray Nagin with 21 counts of public corruption, including bribery and fraud related to his dealings with city vendors following Hurricane Katrina.  The charges are the outgrowth of a City Hall corruption investigation that already has resulted in guilty pleas by two former city officials and two businessmen.  Nagin served as mayor from 2002-2010.

Mayor Mitch Landrieu responded to the indictment with a statement Friday afternoon stating, “This is a sad day for the city of New Orleans. Today’s indictment of former Mayor Ray Nagin alleges serious violations of the public’s trust.  Public corruption cannot and will not be tolerated.”
