BATON ROUGE - Attorneys selected four men and 11 women to be on the jury for former St. Gabriel mayor George Grace's corruption trial.

Judge Maurice Hicks dismissed the jury after they were selected, telling them not to discuss the case with anyone or do any research on it.

"Don't Google me, don't Google the attorneys, don't Google anything about this case," Hicks said.

The jury will receive their instructions tomorrow, with opening statements set to begin after that point.

Grace and several others were indicted as part of an FBI undercover operation into public corruption called "Operation: Cifer 5000."
