After Katrina My Hometown


William Jefferson’s attorneys filed a motion today asking Judge T.S. Ellis III for a new trial for the former New Orleans congressman who was convicted last week on 11 of 16 public corruption charges.

The request is unlikely to be successful, but could prompt the court to release material dealing with Lori Mody, the former Virginia businesswoman who wore a wire to secretly record conversations with Jefferson but did not appear as a witness at his trial.

A jury found Jefferson guilty on 11 counts and acquitted him on five othersafter seven weeks of testimony and five days of deliberation. Ellis has scheduled sentencing for Oct. 30. Lead Prosecutor Mark Lytle said sentencing guidelines, which are optional, are likely to call for Jefferson, 62, to spend 20 years in prison, though his lawyers are sure to ask for a far less severe term.
