Ray Nagin, former New Orleans mayor, charged with taking bribes while in office

A federal grand jury charged former Mayor Ray Nagin Friday with 21 counts of corruption, including six counts of bribery, one count of conspiracy, one count of money laundering, nine counts of deprivation of honest services through wire fraud and four counts of filing false tax returns, alleging that while in office, Nagin took cash bribes and gifts from two city contractors. Nagin’s long-expected indictment arrived more than two and a half years after he left City Hall and relocated to the Dallas area.

Two businessmen, Frank Fradella and Rodney Williams, have both pleaded guilty to paying bribes to the mayor — who was listed in earlier court documents as “Public Official A” — in exchange for the promise of city work. Both are expected to testify against Nagin if his case goes to trial.
