Former indicted director of NOAH wants judge to release documents

Updated:

New Orleans, La.- An indicted former head of a New Orleans city agency says former prosecutors "racially" attacked her.

Stacey Jackson now wants the government to hand over internal documents.

The attorney for the former Executive Director of New Orleans Affordable Home ownership or NOAH wants a judge to force the government to produce all material related to investigations of grand jury leaks and online posts on nola.com.

He filed a motion Friday.

The government indicted Stacey Jackson earlier this year on charges of conspiracy, fraud, theft, and obstruction of justice.

Her attorney, Eddie Castaing, pointed out in Friday's filing that former Assistant U.S. Attorney Sal Perricone posted on nola.com after at least one story on NOAH writing, "It's our turn to steal. We got the power. You can't do anything to us."

In the filing Castaing wrote.."Pervasive racial blogs and remarks, within the United States Attorney's office, will show and bolster that this grand jury indictment was racially motivated."

That statement has Castaing asking to see what else the government has and he wants information related to all investigations of misconduct.

We reached Castaing by phone Friday afternoon. He wouldn't comment, but did acknowledge he filed the document Friday.
