Businessman sentenced in Aaron Broussard bribery case

Updated:

New Orleans, La. - A Kenner resident was sentenced Thursday to 20 months in prison for conspiracy to commit bribery in the case of former Jefferson Parish President Aaron Broussard.

William P. Mack, 64, was also fined $60,000 and will be placed on two years of supervised release after he serves his time. The sentence was handed down by U.S. District Judge Nannette Jolivette Brown.

According to court documents, beginning in 2002, Mack, who was president and owner of First Communications Company, began a business relationship with Broussard in which Broussard steered telecommunications work to Mack's firm in exchange for monthly payments of $1,500.

During the time Broussard was Parish President, Mack paid him approximately $66,000.

In September 2012, Broussard pled guilty to multiple corruption charges, including conspiracy to commit bribery involving the bribes paid by Mack. Broussard was ultimately sentenced to 46 months in prison.
