Second Former Orleans Parish Deputy Pleads Guilty To Federal Corruption Charges

Thursday a second former Orleans Parish deputy pleaded guilty to federal corruption charges.

Gerard Hoffman, Jr is the former head of maintainence for the department.

Prosecutors say he rigged a bidding system and steered contracts in exchange for a trailer, storage container, and construction work at his home.

He faces a maximum of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Last week, the former purchasing director at the parish jail pleaded guilty to bribery charges.

Prosecutors say payoffs for John Sens included $30,000 in cash and construction of a pool at his home.
