And the time spent in the Hotlanta Pen was evidently hell. But….
I was there when Aaron Broussard was sentenced and had to deal with the aftermath. By aftermath I mean the disappointment felt by the public on the relatively short sentence Broussard received. As for his sentencing, I heard the man take responsibility for the crimes to which he pleaded in unequivocal terms first hand. 46 months was not a bad outcome given the life of crime Broussard led. And now he wants outs early, before he gets the full Bureau of Prison experience.
Fact of the matter is time flies by and Broussard only has 14 months left to serve. That said once he hits the ol’ half-way house he’ll be scrubbing terlits like mad and maybe that’s what he trying to avoid. Who knows? In any event he’s not getting much love in reader comments to Paul’s story. Here is a sampling:
Wait! Aaron had to clean floors??? By himself? Well at least they weren’t flooded lke mine were after Katrina. Darn pumping stations.
Now I have to ask, just what kind of work is he qualified to do on the outside that does not require a professional license that lists moral turpitude as a disqualifier? Maybe if more of the politicos did time in the same conditions there would be less incentive to steal from the public
If he’s really in so much debt, how’s he able to afford a high priced lawyer like Buddy Leman?
Makes you wonder where all that money is coming from.
This guy is a piece of work! Cry, Cry, Cry is all he knows how to do. Aaron, you are pathetic.. You are getting exactly what you deserve. Try for once in your life to take it like a man.
Slabbed has done nothing on the above except highlight the show. Gordon Russell and Lee Zurik get the props for bring the story home. Next up for Reed and his son is the hangin’.
Moving right along is a two pack Slabbed New Media was right in the thick of in the prosecution of former Parish Prez Aaron Broussard of the Goatherder Crime Family and the mental meltdown of former Assistant US Attorney Sal Perricone:
I have so many nuggets that never went down into the memory hole like the following and boy howdy does the gang get themselves in trouble telling all sorts of whoppers! Threatened with a foreign defamation lawsuit in a noted area for libel tourism before the passage of the SPEECH Act the Times Picayune ran away from the libel terrorists at Trout Point Lodge like scared school girls. Five years ago plus one day an interview of Aaron Broussard was run on Fox 8 where he was challenged over what we now know to be criminal activity with certain Parish venders using his property at the Trout Point Lodge in Canada to conceal it. Five years ago today Broussard resigned in disgrace. Today he is in the Federal Pen with his buddies in Canada known as “ememies of the free press” and noted libel terrorists.
One media outlet stood tall in the face of this litigation terrorism and that would be Slabbed New Media. Enjoy.
Canadian court orders? Here at Slabbed New Media we wipe our asses with ’em. Down here where the courts are meaningful however I do believe every lawyer with a Mississippi license has now exited the building:
After reading the 53 pages of motion, memorandum and exhibits I wondered if I wasn’t caught in some sort of bizarre spaghetti western movie time warp. Guilty pleas are extraordinarily hard to undo, even in cases where clear miscarriages of justice have occurred. Even Perry Mason can’t help things that require divine intervention.
That said if there is someone I’d love to see inside a courtroom having to answer to what he’s done it would be the former Goatherder in Chief, who I thought I heard in person taking responsibility for the crimes to which he plead before Judge Head almost one year ago to the day.
Finally I’d be remiss if I did not point out that every time his dealings with the gang at Trout Point Lodge came up, Mr. Broussard would run away like a scared grade schoolgirl, first the day after Val Bracy interviewed him in January 2010 where she nailed him on the subject and he immediately resigned his post as Parish President.
First up is the Jefferson Parish Hospital debacle. I have sources that are telling me that Chris Roberts was right about HCA’s numbers not adding up. As unlikely as that appears it’s a subject well worth exploring in greater detail, especially given the 4-3 votes of late on the Hospital privatization process.
Next up are a couple of links from Gordon Russell over at the Advocate as today’s word for the day is Prescient as Slabbed once again takes a few minor victory laps.
FCI Tallahassee lists itself as a female prison thus it is not likely Broussard would end up there permanently. I did notice there is a detention center at this facility as well. I continue to hear the former Goatherder in Chief is headed for Pensacola. We’ll see.
