Manuel Torres at NOLA Media Group has the latest on Titus:
Aiming to stay on the offensive in the River Birch probe, federal prosecutors are preparing a new indictment to pile on additional charges – and perhaps add new defendants – as early as Thursday, according to court testimony and sources close to the probe.
Mark Titus, who was sentenced Wednesday to five years in prison on a conspiracy charge, is likely to be charged in the superseding indictment, said his attorney, Jimmy Ardoin. In court, Ardoin revealed that prosecutors have given him notice of their plans to file a new indictment soon.
Presario had the worst news for Team Landfill the other day in a comment left on Slabbed in the extra national resources the Department of Justice is putting in this area as the show down with former George Bush US Attorney Nominee Fred Heebe and his step dad Jim Ward draws closer. Dominick Fazzio, Chief Financial Officer of all things landfill and reputed mafia capo is up next for his alleged role conspiring with Titus to steal more than a cool million from Garner Services, a company Titus co-owned.
All indicators point to the coming battle and Manuel Torres has all the skinny on this as well as the Public Integrity Team is taking over the Henry Mouton case. Unlike Titus, this is not bad news for Mouton as he is evidently singing like a canary as Team USA has asked for a sentencing delay for Mouton, who earlier admitted to taking bribes from Team Landfill to influence politicians such as former Louisiana Gov Mike Foster, himself a strong supporter of Bushie’s attempt to install Heebe as the US Attorney in New Orleans back in 2001.
In any event I hope everyone has lots of popcorn on hand to pop while the next act of the show warms up behind the curtain.
