Judge cuts ex-New Orleans mayor slack with 10-year sentence

Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin was sentenced Tuesday to serve 10 years in prison, winning leniency from federal sentencing guidelines months after a jury found him guilty of 20 of 21 felony counts, including bribery, wire fraud, tax evasion and fraud that deprived the city’s citizens of his honest services.
