Gremillion, Jack P. F.


Louisiana politician whose 1971 perjury conviction ended his sixteen years as the state's attorney general. A federal jury convicted Gremillion of lying to a grand jury about his financial interest in the bankrupt Louisiana Loan and Thrift Corporation. A few months earlier, he had been acquitted of fraud charges in the same case. Mr. Gremillion served fifteen months of a three-year sentence in the minimum security federal prison at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida. Gov. Edwin W. Edwards pardoned him in 1976, and he eventually resumed his law practice. -- New York Times obituaries, March 6, 2001.
