Former Jefferson Parish president moved to halfway house
BATON ROUGE - Former Jefferson Parish President Aaron Broussard has been moved to a halfway house, with about six months left on the nearly four-year prison sentence after he pleaded guilty to federal corruption charges in 2012.
The 67-year-old Broussard was in the custody of a federal residential re-entry management field office based in Grand Prairie, Texas, as of Monday. He had been an inmate at a minimum-security prison camp in Pensacola, Florida.
His release date is still scheduled for Sept. 5.
Broussard took office as parish president in January 2004 and resigned at the beginning of 2010 amid a federal corruption investigation. He pleaded guilty two years later to charges of conspiracy, wire fraud and theft.
