A businessman who provided key testimony against former Mayor Ray Nagin has been sentenced to a year and a day in federal prison.
Rodney Williams had admitted his role in a conspiracy to bribe Nagin.
U.S. District Judge Susie Morgan imposed the sentence yesterday.
Williams pleaded guilty in 2012. In February, he was among several witnesses who testified against Nagin.
Williams said he handed over $60,000 in payoffs to secure city contracts.
Before he was sentenced, Williams tearfully apologized to his family.
