Another delay: Nagin sentencing reset for July 9

NEW ORLEANS - Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin's sentencing on federal corruption charges has been rescheduled for July 9.

Sentencing had been set for July 2 but U.S. District Judge Helen Berrigan set a new date in a brief Tuesday order saying there was a scheduling conflict.

Nagin was convicted in February on 20 counts including bribery, fraud, money laundering and conspiracy - charges arising from his two terms as mayor. The 58-year-old Democrat served from 2002 to 2010 and was known for his impassioned pleas for help for the city after Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005.

Some of the convictions carry possible prison sentences of 20 years

Tuesday's order marked the second delay in sentencing for Nagin. A June sentencing date was delayed at the request of his defense attorney.
