Former Port Vincent clerk due in court this week
LIVINGSTON- Recent audits providing new details on a case of alleged fraud involving a former village of Port Vincent clerk.
Brandi Deaton surrendered to Livingston Parish deputies in September amid accusations that she stole from the village, where she worked from October 2013 through March of this year.
This week, the Louisiana Legislative Auditor released findings from a separate investigative audit on the village's finances. The audit finds about $16,890 was collected but not deposited in the village's bank account between January and March.
The district attorney's office is prosecuting Deaton on one count each of theft of more than $1,500, first-degree injuring of public records, failure to report money received and malfeasance.
Deaton is scheduled for arraignment Thursday.
Online jail records do not list an attorney for her.
