Former NOLA Mayor Nagin Sentenced to 10 Years

Former mayor of New Orleans, Ray Nagin, was sentenced today to 10 years in federal prison for taking bribes and fraud related charges in the rebuilding of his city after Hurricane Katrina.
Nagin accepted gifts and money from businessmen vying for contracts to rebuild the storm ravaged city.
Much of the city has not been rebuilt and still in ruins.
