NEW ORLEANS – Dwaine Hodges, a former colleague of convicted City Hall tech vendor Mark St. Pierre, had his own sentencing pushed back two months so he can testify in former Mayor Ray Nagin’s corruption trial.
His sentencing is now scheduled for Dec. 19.
Hodges pleaded guilty to helping St. Pierre bribe Nagin’s technology chief Anthony Jones with $22,000.
Hodges made news recently in Baton Rouge when WBRZ-TV cameras caught him working as a contractor at the house of a new federal judge in Louisiana’s Middle District, Shelley Dick. The station raised questions about the ethics of a federal judge employing a convicted felon with a pending case, even though Hodges’ case is in the Eastern District in New Orleans.
