NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A Harvey man has been sentenced to two years in prison for his role in a plot to steal federal grant funds earmarked for a Hurricane Katrina home repair program operated by a New Orleans city agency.
U.S. District Judge Jay Zainey also on Thursday ordered 47-year-old Richard Hall to pay more than $116,000 in restitution and a $30,000 fine. Hall pleaded guilty to conspiracy and theft charges. He was one of five city contractors charged in a case involving the New Orleans Affordable Homeownership program, which received federal funds for gutting homes after the 2005 storm.
Prosecutors say Hall was paid for home repairs he didn't perform and received tens of thousands of dollars to which he wasn't entitled. Mayor Mitch Landrieu's administration dissolved NOAH in 2011.
