(KCEN) -- Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin is facing charges after being accused of corruption in connection to Hurricane Katrina.
A federal grand jury charged Nagin with 21 counts of bribery, conspiracy, money laundering, wire fraud and filing false tax returns.
The federal indictment accuses Nagin of accepting more than $160,000 in bribes and gratuities from contractors while the city recovered from Hurricane Katrina.
Two business men have pleaded guilty to paying bribes to the 56-year-old former mayor.
Both are expected to testify if Nagin's case goes to trial.
