A federal judge says former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin will have to pay the government more than $501,000 as a result of his conviction on bribery and other charges.

U.S. District Judge Helen Berrigan issued the forfeiture order Tuesday. Nagin was convicted in February on 20 counts including bribery, fraud, money laundering and conspiracy during his two terms as mayor. He served from 2001 to 2010 and his term included 2005's Hurricane Katrina which shattered the Crescent City.

Prosecutors say Nagin received more than $501,000 in money, goods and services from businessmen in exchange for lucrative city work. Nagin's attorney says the amount should be less because Nagin shared liability with others.

Nagin is set to be sentenced June 11, but he is seeking a delay. The charges carry maximum sentences ranging from three to 20 years.
