Jim Letten, the nation's longest serving U.S. Attorney, announced his resignation Thursday. Here's a look back at some of the high-profile targets of his office's investigations.
Former Jefferson Parish President Aaron Broussard pleaded guilty in September 2012 to two of the 27 criminal charges he originally faced. They included conspiracy to commit bribery and theft concerning a program receiving federal funds.
The charges stem from a $323,000 payroll fraud scheme involving Broussard's ex-wife Karen Parker and bribes totaling more than $60,000 from telecommunications business owner William Mack.
