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.
Yet another perp walk...
