NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A federal prosecutor demoted for anonymously posting comments on a newspaper's website has retired, a Justice Department spokesman said Monday.
Jan Mann and her husband, fellow prosecutor Jim Mann, both retired from the U.S. attorney's office in New Orleans on Saturday.
Jan Mann was former U.S. Attorney Jim Letten's top assistant before he demoted her last month. Letten resigned earlier this month amid a Justice Department probe of comments that Mann and another prosecutor, Sal Perricone, posted on nola.com, The Times-Picayune's companion website.
Perricone resigned in March after acknowledging he criticized judges and politicians and commented on cases in his posts. Mann didn't admit posting comments until after a defamation suit was filed against her by the owner of a landfill at the center of a federal probe.
In a related development Monday, an attorney for a former parish president who pleaded guilty to corruption charges asked a federal judge to order a hearing to determine if the case against his client was tainted by prosecutorial misconduct.
Robert Jenkins, who represents former Jefferson Parish President Aaron Broussard, said in a court filing that Letten's office failed to thoroughly investigate the source of alleged leaks to local television stations WVUE-TV and WWL-TV about Broussard's impending indictment.
Jenkins said his client was the subject of some of Mann and Perricone's derogatory posts at the same time Letten's office was investigating him. The defense attorney argues the posts show that high-ranking prosecutors plotted to destroy Broussard's public image.
U.S. District Judge Hayden Head didn't immediately rule on Jenkins' request for an evidentiary hearing. In June, Head had ordered Letten's office to provide him with details of its investigation into whether any prosecutors had publicly revealed secret information about the Broussard case.
