A jury  hammered former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin Wednesday by convicting  him  on 20 of 21 federal corruption counts, including bribery.

The 57-year-old Nagin  led his city through the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 .  He was found guilty on a gaggle  of charges.

Prosecutors  said he accepted bribes, free trips and other gratuities from contractors in exchange for helping them secure millions of dollars in city work while he was in office.
