Arraignment delayed for ex-New Orleans mayor Nagin
Wednesday - 1/23/2013, 4:16pm EST
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A judge has postponed the arraignment of former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, who is charged with taking contractors' bribes in exchange for helping them secure lucrative work for the city.
Nagin, who gained national prominence leading battered New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, was scheduled to be arraigned Jan. 31. On Wednesday, however, U.S. District Judge Helen Berrigan rescheduled arraignment for Feb. 20 without explanation.
A federal indictment last Friday accuses Nagin of accepting more than $200,000 in bribes, island vacations and other gratuities. Charges against Nagin include bribery, wire fraud and filing false tax returns.
His lawyer hasn't returned several phone calls from The Associated Press.
A once-popular mayor elected in 2002, Nagin saw his support dwindle over his city's tepid pace of recovery after Katrina.
