Prosecutors: Ray Nagin deserves harsh sentence

NEW ORLEANS - Federal prosecutors say former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin has shown no remorse for his crimes and lies to investigators and U.S. District Judge Ginger Berrigan should sentence him harshly.

Nagin, convicted on 20 counts of conspiracy, bribery and fraud, had asked Berrigan to show leniency in the face of federal guidelines that recommend he be sentenced to no less than 20 years in prison.

In a court filing Tuesday, Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew Coman said Nagin should do every day of that 20-year sentence.

Nagin's sentencing is scheduled for July 9.
