Slammer Time: Aaron Broussard Gets Close to 4 Years in Jail
Former President of Jefferson Parish Aaron Broussard and his ex-wife Karen Parker were sentenced to prison and probation terms in federal court Monday for their involvement in a wire-fraud, bribery and theft scandal that cheated taxpayers out of $328,308. The conspiracy went undetected for over a six-year period, from 2003-2010.
Former Jefferson Parish attorney Thomas Wilkinson was also sentenced in connection with the embezzlement case. U.S. District Court Judge Hayden Head of the Southern District of Texas handed down the ruling.
Broussard, 64, will serve 46 months in prison. He was also ordered to pay $214,209.94 in restitution to Jefferson Parish, and to forfeit $280,209.94 in illegal proceeds as dictated by his plea agreement.
Broussard pleaded guilty in September to employing Parker, 47, as a Paralegal Supervisor, despite her lack of credentials and requisite knowledge, and funneling public money to her in the form of a salary. Broussard repeatedly attempted to hide the illegal nature of Parker’s fake position, and had her transferred to the ID Management Office of the East Bank Regional Library to conceal the fact that she was not working as the Paralegal Supervisor at the Jefferson Parish office.
Parker, 47, who was charged with misprision of a felony, was sentenced to three years of probation. She was ordered to pay $160,430.15 in restitution to Jefferson Parish.
Wilkinson, 54, who also pled guilty to misprision of a felony, was sentenced to three years probation and was ordered to pay $214,209.94.
