The Executive Director for the Capital Area Legal Services Corporation, James Wayne, has been placed on leave.

News 2 has learned this comes after an audit was conducted by the Office of Inspector General in Washington D.C. surrounding more than $318,000 in questionable spending. Those spending practices highlight nearly $12,000 in meals expensed at the "Camelot Club" when Wayne dined alone.  There are also nearly $80,000 in expenses on Wayne's Toyota Camry for lease payments and fuel costs.

The organization provides the poor in 12 parishes with legal service.

We will have the latest developments on this story coming up on News 2 at six.
