Mayor scheduled to face contempt charges
PORT ALLEN - Mayor Deedy Slaughter is scheduled to be in court this morning to face accusations she violated a judge's order to stop interfering with the Port Allen chief financial officer's job.
Judge Alvin Batiste ordered Slaughter back in February not to hinder Audrey McCain's work after Slaughter tried to fire her, and the judge ruled she had no authority to.
McCain's attorneys filed court documents in April accusing Slaughter of violating that order on nine different occasions, including not giving McCain keys to her office and changing her computer so information was sent to other people.
News 2's Chris Nakamoto will have more details from this morning's court hearing at 6 p.m.
