Former Jefferson Parish President Aaron Broussard reported to federal prison in 2013.

U.S. Federal Judge Hayden Head sentenced Broussard to 46 months in prison on corruption charges.

"I accept full responsibility. I apologize to the people of Jefferson Parish. I brought dishonor to my position," Broussard said on sentencing day.

Broussard admitted to a payroll fraud scheme in which he and others paid his wife for a parish job she never performed, was not qualified to hold and for which she got annual reviews and raises.

The former Parish President also admitted he took bribes.

The disgraced former Jefferson Parish President was ordered to forfeit $280,000.
