NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Former north shore district attorney, Walter Reed and his son will fight his corruption charges in court today.

Reed was convicted in May of spending thousands of dollars of campaign money on personal items and funneling payments to his son Steven.

Today, Reed's attorney will claim federal prosecutors went too far when they made a criminal case out of a state ethics matter.

They want a new trial or a reversal of his conviction on 18 corruption charges.
