GOVERNMENT’S SENTENCING MEMORANDUM

Having been convicted by the jury of selling his congressional office with the intention of enriching his family with hundreds of millions of dollars in bribe proceeds and concealing more than $478,000.00 in actual bribe payments through nominee companies and sham consulting agreements, the defendant, Congressman William J. Jefferson, now comes before this Court to be sentenced for his stunning betrayal of the public trust.

The defendant betrayed the public’s trust time after time by using his congressional office as a criminal enterprise to further a pattern of racketeering acts of corruption and self-enrichment.

His crimes included no fewer than eleven distinct bribe schemes as well as a conspiracy involving an extraordinary and historically unprecedented agreement to bribe the then-sitting Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar.

In committing these crimes, Congressman Jefferson reneged on his obligation to the citizens of the United States to perform the responsibilities of his public office free from deceit, concealment, and self-dealing.
