Edward Paul Verdin, 36, is one slippery character that couldn’t make his way out of a sticky situation and pled guilty to mail fraud and money laundering violations in Lafayette, La.

Verdin of Franklin, La., was employed as a claim adjuster for the Louisiana Oilfield Contractors Association (LOCA), a self-insured worker’s compensation group in Lafayette.
