Ray Nagin Gets 10 Years in Prison

Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison Wednesday after being convicted on 20 of 21 counts of bribery, wire fraud, tax evasion, and other charges. Nagin, 58, was mayor for two terms, including during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. He was facing 20 or more years in prison under federal sentencing guidelines. He will report to prison Sept. 8 and has been recommended to a minimum-security federal detention center. The 10 years are the same that former Gov. Edwin Edwards got for corruption in 2000.
