Shazam folks, whenever Judge Berrigan enters the news cycle business picks up here on Slabbed. I think by now everyone knows Judge Berrigan went well under the sentencing guidelines with the 10 year sentence she gave Ray Ray the Chocolate Guy. People are not happy so here is a salient link and a couple blasts from the past:
Our Views: Too easy on Nagin ~ New Orleans Advocate Editorial Board
Old School Tuesday Music: I sense a major disturbance in the force ~ Slabbed 7/17/2012
I sense a bunch of pissed off Chalmations are digging dirt on Judge Ginger here on Slabbed ~ Slabbed July 8, 2011
Judge Ginger Berrigan, Welcome to the infirmary of the SLABBED ~ Slabbed February 18, 2009
It looks to me like Judge Berrigan tooks Jeffrey’s advice knocking off 5 years. What we are missing in the equation is Lee Zurik.
Alternative sentencing. Berrigan knocks 5 years off of Nagin’s prison term in exchange for one “cold-cocking” administered by Lee Zurik.

Worth noting is Mark St. Pierre got 17 for his role in Nagin era corruption. Normally the pols get locked up while those that bribe them get off scott free. St. Pierre was unlucky in that he did not draw Judge Berrigan. Same for Jonathan Bolar.
