A man who once served as the top aide to disgraced former Jefferson Parish President Aaron Broussard is scheduled to learn his sentence in a federal corruption case.
Tim Whitmer was set for sentencing Thursday morning. He pleaded guilty last year to concealing fraud, theft involving government programs and other crimes.
Broussard was sentenced earlier this year to serve 46 months for conspiracy and theft charges in a plot to give a lucrative parish job to his former wife and pay her for work she never did. He cooperated with investigators in the case against Broussard.
