NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The former subject of a series of FOX 8 investigations wants more time before reporting to prison.

Former North Shore District Attorney Walter Reed is supposed to begin a four year prison sentence by April 1st.

However, according to federal court documents, he wants a two week delay because of a medical situation.

FOX 8′s joint investigation with NOLA.com exposed Reed’s questionable campaign payments.

A corruption trial that followed those stories ended with a guilty verdict.
