IBERIA PARISH, La. (KLFY)- Former Jeanerette Mayor Aprill Foulcard was booked into the Iberia Parish Jail Wednesday on five counts of malfeasance in office.

Foulcard was arrested by State Police on a warrant signed by 15th Judicial District Judge Keith Comeaux. She posted bond and has been released.

State Police Troop I spokesman Thomas Gossen said Foulcard’s charge is connected to an investigation into a 2018 audit of the city’s finances, which indicated possible state law violations.
