Former JP CAO Whitmer Gets Probation

The United States Attorney’s Office in New Orleans announced Thursday that former Jefferson Parish CAO Tim Whitmer will serve three years probation for his part in a conspiracy to commit bribery, wire fraud, and theft.

He must also pay restitution to Jefferson Parish in the amount of $160,430 and a $5,000 fine.

Next month, former parish president Aaron Broussard will begin serving a nearly four-year federal prison sentence for his role in the scheme that included arranging for his ex-wife to receive a parish paralegal supervisor job, and its salary, even though she was unqualified for the job.
