Plaquemine looking to fill police chief position after former resigned, pleaded guilty to malfeasance
PLAQUEMINE, La. – Mayor Ed Reeves is set to name an interim police chief next week.
Reeves has called a special meeting of the city’s board of selectmen for 6:30 p.m. Dec. 13 to make his announcement.
The WBRZ Investigative unit reported in recent months that Payne sought sexual favors from a woman in exchange for Payne dropping charges against her boyfriend.
An Iberville Parish grand jury last month charges Payne with five counts of malfeasance.
His three-year prison sentence was suspended, and he was placed on a year of probation.
Attempts Monday to contact Reeves were unsuccessful.
An election for a new chief will be held in the spring or fall.
