Jury to resume deliberations in ex-mayor's case

Former Mayor Ray Nagin enters federal court in in New Orleans. Nagin is charged with accepting bribes, free trips and other gratuities from contractors in exchange for helping them secure millions of dollars in city work. The charges in his 21-count indictment, including bribery and wire fraud, are the product of a City Hall investigation that already has resulted in several convictions or guilty pleas by former Nagin associates.
