Rep. William Jefferson, D-La., was indicted Monday on federal charges of racketeering, soliciting bribes and money-laundering in a long-running bribery investigation into business deals he tried to broker in Africa.
The 16-count indictment was handed up in U.S. District Court in Alexandria. A press conference was scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET to discuss the case.
