Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) —
Former New Roads Mayor Tommy Nelson heads to court today. Nelson was caught up in "Operation Blighted Officials"--- a federal investigation that caught several Louisiana officials taking bribes from undercover FBI agents and a government operative. Earlier this year former White Castle Mayor Maurice Brown was convicted of corruption; his brother Mario Brown, the towns police chief, was acquitted.
