St Landry Schools Investigation

Posted: Updated:

OPELOUSAS, La. (AP) - A federal judge has declared as complex the case involving two St. Landry Parish School Board members charged with conspiracy to extort money in exchange for votes for a new school superintendent.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael Hill in Lafayette said the nature of the case makes it "unreasonable to expect adequate preparation" within the time limits established by the Speedy Trial Act. The ruling means the case could take longer than some others.

Board members Quincy Richard Sr. and John Miller were indicted Oct. 24. They were each formally charged in a three-count indictment, including one count of conspiracy to defraud the United States and two counts of bribery involving federal programs.

They have pleaded not guilty.
