Broussard will serve his prison term in North Carolina

Former Jefferson Parish President Aaron Broussard will serve out his prison term in North Carolina.  His attorney, Robert Jenkins, confirms to Fox 8 News that Broussard has been assigned to Butner Federal Corrections Complex and must report by May 6th.

Broussard was sentenced to 46 months in prison for pleading guilty to creating a paralegal supervisor position for his then-wife Karen Parker, who wasn't qualified for the job.  He also admitted to accepting bribes from a businessman in exchange for parish work.

Butner Correction Complex is a federal prison complex for male inmates, operated by the Federal Bureau of Prisons.  It's located about 45 miles northwest of Raleigh, the capital of North Carolina.  The facility is noted for having Bernie Madoff as one of its inmates, who is convicted for perpetrating the largest ponzi-scheme in history.

The complex consists of three facilities including one which houses inmates of all security levels with health issues.  It is the largest medical/psychological complex in the entire federal prison system.

Jenkins says because of Broussard's medical conditions, which include prostate cancer, the North Carolina facility is a good place for Broussard.  Jenkins called Butner "an outstanding medical facility".
