Deliberations Halted in Nagin Corruption Trial

by Maniko Barthelemy

Will a jury of seven men and five women find ex-New Orleans Mayor Clarence Ray Nagin guilty or not guilty? Nagin has to wait a little longer to find out the answer that will instantly change his life. The jury in the federal government's corruption trial against Nagin, resumes deliberations Wednesday morning. A juror was unable to make it to court this morning and no further details were given to the media. Monday, shortly after closing arguments in the case, the jury deliberated about two hours before going home.

Nagin faces 21 indictments, including wire fraud, corruption, bribery, and money laundering. If convicted he could spend nearly two decades in federal prison.
