GRETNA, La. (AP) — The brother of imprisoned former Congressman Bill Jefferson has surrendered in Jefferson Parish. Authorities say Archie Jefferson was wanted for misapplication of funds and theft for renovation work conducted at a Marrero home.
A federal judge has been asked to postpone a sentencing hearing for the ex-wife of former Jefferson Parish President Aaron Broussard for her role in a payroll fraud case.
Karen Parker, who is scheduled to be sentenced July 27, pleaded guilty in January to one count of misprision of a felony, or concealing a crime.
In a court filing Monday, federal prosecutors and Parker's defense attorney asked U.S. District Judge Hayden Head to delay her sentencing until November.
