Ray Nagin, a 58-year-old former cable television manager, was sentenced to 10 years in prison Wednesday for bribery, money laundering, fraud and tax violations stemming from his two terms as New Orleans’ mayor from 2002-2010.

If the Federal Bureau of Prisons goes along with the recommendation of U.S. District Judge Helen Berrigan, he will do the time at a federal lockup in Oakdale, Louisiana — where former Gov. Edwin Edwards spent some of his own 10-year sentence, and where a current resident is Nagin’s fellow New Orleans Democrat, disgraced former U.S. Rep. William Jefferson.
