FEDERAL GRAND JURY RETURNS THIRD SUPERSEDING INDICTMENT AGAINST MOSE JEFFERSON AND RENEE GILL PRATT
March 05, 2010
RENEE GILL PRATT, age 55, former elected State Representative for House District 91, State of Louisiana, and former New Orleans City Councilmember, and MOSE JEFFERSON, age 66, both residents of New Orleans, Louisiana, were charged via a five (5)-count superseding indictment by a Federal Grand Jury today with Conspiracy to Violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), Mail Fraud, and False Statements, announced U. S. Attorney Jim Letten.
Today's indictment is the same as the existing indictment in all counts, charges, and penalties, as they pertain to MOSE JEFFERSON and RENEE GILL PRATT. The indictment eliminates previous substantive counts, including mail fraud, money laundering, aggravated identity theft, and tax evasion, that pertained mainly to Betty Jefferson and Angela Coleman, both of whom pled guilty before Judge Ivan L.R. Lemelle last week. The indictment also represents a refinement of the government's theory of the case with respect toe Count 1, the RICO conspiracy.
The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Internal Revenue Service, Criminal Investigation Division, the United States Department of Education, Office of Inspector General and the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, Office of Inspector General. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U. S. Attorneys Daniel P. Friel, Brian Marcelle, and Fred P. Harper, Jr.
