NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Former Jefferson Parish President Aaron Broussard has asked a federal judge to give him more time to report to prison because the Bureau of Prisons has yet to identify the prison.
The request filed Monday says the prosecutor, probation officer and pretrial services officer assigned to his case don't object.
U.S. District Judge Hayden Head had given Broussard until April 8 to begin nearly four years in prison for bribery and his role in a payroll fraud scheme involving his ex-wife, Karen Parker.
The 46-month sentence is the minimum under federal sentencing guidelines.
Broussard and former parish attorney Tom Wilkinson were charged with plotting to give a lucrative parish job to Parker. All three pleaded guilty in the scheme. Parker and Wilkinson each got three years of probation.
