WDSU TV reports sons of former mayor delivered documents last week
According to a broadcast report, the sons of former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin appeared before a federal grand jury last Friday and delivered documents requested by the government in connection with an investigation of their father's activities when he was mayor.
WDSU-TV reports that 26-year-old Jarin Nagin and 28-year-old Jeremy Nagin complied with subpoenas issued by the government.
Channel 6 reports their attorney Clarence Roby said the mayor's sons "complied with everything asked - and it is our understanding they are not targets" of the investigation.
According to the station, Roby would not disclose what took place when the two were called to the witness stand.
Nagin and his sons operated the Stone Age granite countertop company when Nagin was mayor of the city.
A former city contractor who has pleaded guilty to bribing an unnamed public official said he provided truckloads of free granite to the official and then arranged for the official to serve as a paid consultant for his firm after leaving office.
The unnamed official is believed to be Nagin, but the former two-term mayor has denied any wrongdoing and has not been charged with any crime.
