2 more charged in court bribery investigation
LAFAYETTE - Federal prosecutors have charged two more people in an ongoing investigation of bribes for favorable treatment in the Lafayette court system, including an assistant district attorney.
According to court filings, Greg Williams, an assistant district attorney in the 15th Judicial District Attorney's office, faces one count of conspiracy.
Prosecutors have also charged Denease Curry with one count of misprision of a felony for allegedly not reporting the bribery scheme when she had knowledge of it, though it was unclear Thursday for whom she worked.
The Advocate reports the charges come after District Attorney Mike Harson's longtime secretary and office administrator, Barna D. Haynes, pleaded guilty Monday to accepting at least $55,000 in bribes to help criminal defendants get favorable treatment, mainly in DWI cases.
