NEW ORLEANS - Federal prosecutors will hold a news conference at 4 p.m. Monday to discuss a public corruption case that reportedly involves former New Orleans technology chief Greg Meffert and his wife.

The New Orleans Times Picayune cites unidentified sources saying Meffert has agreed in principle to a deal to reduce charges against him and his wife, Linda, in exchange for cooperation in the government's case against Meffert's former business partner, Mark St. Pierre.

The Mefferts were charged with conspiracy, bribery and public corruption in a sweeping 63-count federal indictment just over a year ago. The government alleges that Meffert took kickbacks from St. Pierre to give St. Pierre's technology companies no-bid contracts at City Hall.
