FBI agent convicted of fraud
Baton Rouge TV station WBRZ recently reported that one of the FBI agents involved in a federal public corruption investigation in Louisiana was convicted in federal court in Tennessee of bank fraud.
Our firm represents one of the elected officials charged in the Louisiana investigation. Attorney Page Pate and other defense lawyers in the case were quoted in the news story saying that they believe the agent’s conviction will undermine the government’s case at trial. Two of the Louisiana defendants are expected to go to trial in February, but our client is not expected to go to trial until June.
