Probation hearing delayed for ex-school official
AMITE, La. - A probation revocation hearing for former Tangipahoa Parish School Board member Eric Dangerfield has been delayed.
The hearing for Dangerfield, who is running for his old seat, was delayed until after the Nov. 4 election. The Advocate reports that the state requested a continuance because two attorneys were out of town Friday.
Dangerfield and his wife, Cassandra, received suspended sentences in May after pleading guilty in a Medicaid fraud case tied to their personal care business in Hammond.
The state Attorney General's Office filed a motion July 17 to have their probations revoked because they had paid only about $200 toward the court-ordered $3.5 million in restitution, fines and costs, and had failed to forfeit property required under their plea deal.
The hearing was re-set for Dec. 5.
