Mark St. Pierre Found Really, Really Guilty


Former City Hall vendor Mark St. Pierre was found guilty of all 53 counts of corruption and bribery the U.S. government charged him with. St. Pierre ran the tech company NetMethods. During the Nagin administration, he funneled not only $880,000, but also vacations, hookers, stripper shows, parties on his yacht, and other hallmarks of rap videos, to city officials. In return, his company got millions of dollars in business. Jurors started deliberations yesterday, and handed down their verdict in only 6 hours, indicating that they didn't buy St. Pierre's testimony from the witness stand earlier this week. Coverage here, here and here.
