Former St. Landry official faces ethics charge

Updated:
LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A former St. Landry Parish School Board member in federal prison for soliciting a bribe from a candidate for superintendent is now facing charges from the state Board of Ethics.

The Advocate reports
the Ethics Board, in charges made public Monday, is seeking unspecific penalties from Quincy Richard Sr., who was convicted last year of trying to squeeze $5,000 from superintendent candidate Joseph Cassimere to secure the board member's vote of support.

Richard reported to prison in March to begin serving a 33-month sentence.

The ethics charges stem from the same facts in the federal bribery case.

Quincy Richard Jr., the former board member's son and attorney, says he had not seen documentation on the ethics charges.
