Recently convicted U.S. Representative William “Bill” Jefferson, has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection along with his wife.
The bankruptcy was filed on August 27, 2009 in the Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana, which is the bankruptcy court that is located in New Orleans.
The Docket Number for Mr. Jefferson’s case is 09-12725.
The Meeting of Creditors is set for October 2, 2009 at 11:30 a.m. at the F. Edward Hebert Federal Building in New Orleans.
It is extremely unlikely that the forfeiture order for $470,000 in bribery receipts will be discharged. Debts that result from criminal conduct normally must be paid.
