Former Louisiana police chief pleads guilty to stalking
LEESVILLE, La. - Former Rosepine Police Chief James Parrott has pleaded guilty to charges of simple battery and stalking.
Attorney General James Caldwell, in a news release Friday, said the 50-year-old Parrott entered the plea in state court in Leesville.
Parrott was indicted in December 2014 after evidence revealed he stalked his estranged wife. He also was indicted on separate battery charges stemming from incidents in which he inappropriately touched and made unwanted sexual advances toward two female inmates working at the Rosepine Town Hall.
Caldwell says Parrott was given two, consecutive six-month suspended sentences in addition to another six-month suspended sentence that will run concurrently. He also was placed on probation for two years, ordered to complete anger management classes and required to refrain from any contact with his ex-wife.
