My first diary! It'll be short, with updates if I can figure out how to do them...

Just wanted to post that the jury has reached a verdict in the Nagin bribery trial in New Orleans. Currently waiting on all interested parties to get back to the courthouse, so I'm not sure what the verdict is. But I'll update as I find out.

10:56 AM PT: Guilty on 20 counts, Not Guilty on Count 7. Apparently it was his sons who received this money

Count 7: Bribery - VERDICT
The charge: Accepting a $10,000 bribe arranged by Rodney Williams, a principal in Three Fold Consultants.
Maximum prison term: 10 years

10:57 AM PT:

11:10 AM PT: Looks like he will be on house arrest until sentencing. Guys on tv are saying they think he'll get between 10 & 20 years.

Also, thanks for the recs!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
