Former state exec booked into jail
BATON ROUGE- The state's former health secretary, Bruce Greenstein, was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Jail Thursday following his September 23rd indictment on perjury charges.
Greenstein was booked and jail records show he was no longer in custody.
The indictment accused Greenstein of lying while testifying under oath at a Senate confirmation hearing and during a grand jury investigation concerning a $200 million state contract awarded to one of his former employers.
At issue is a government contract awarded to Client Network Services Inc. in 2012 to handle Medicaid claims processing. Greenstein worked as a vice president for CNSI from 1995 to 1998. The Jindal administration canceled the contract after they said they learned Greenstein had inappropriate contact with the company during the bid process.
