24th JDC Judge Alan Green Indicted
Yesterday the feds indicted 24th JDC Judge Alan Green, accusing him of accepting $20,000 in bribes in return for helping Bail Bonds Unlimited and its principal, Louis Marcotte III. Media outlets reporting on the indictment include the Times-Picayune, ABC News, and the Associated Press.
prosecutors wasted no time driving their point home by projecting on a large screen secretly recorded video of Green in his chambers on April 3, 2002. It showed the judge collecting what prosecutors said was $5,800 in cash in a 75-minute period, $800 from Gretna City Attorney W.J. LeBlanc, the rest from Norman Bowley, a former employee of bail bonds king Louis Marcotte III.
Representative Jalila Jefferson-Bullock
Democrat - District 91
Mr. Jefferson received significant campaign contributions from iGates CEO, Vernon Jackson, and Jacksons wife. Mr. Jackson and iGate also made campaign contributions to Rep. Jeffersons daughter, Louisiana state Rep. Jalila Jefferson-Bullock.
In order to further a deal in Ghana similar to the Nigerian deal, Rep. Jefferson traveled to that country with official staff, a member of his extended family and an employee of Mr. Pfeffers. He again used his official position to promote the deal, in exchange for a percentage of the Ghanian company and a position within that company for his family members.
