Top La. Dept. Of Justice employee Pat Magee to complete training courses, take 20k reduction in pay following suspension


BATON ROUGE, La. (KLFY) The Director of Criminal Division for the Louisiana Department of Justice has been ordered to take a 38-day suspension, accept a $20k reduction in pay and complete multiple training courses following allegations of inappropriate conversations with colleagues and other third-party affiliates of the LADOJ.

In November, 2020 Lafayette native Pat Magee was placed on administrative leave with pay while under investigation for potential violation of office policy.

On Tuesday, the results of the independent investigation were released and KLFY obtained a copy.

It reads in part:

“Your behavior is believed to have been joking in nature and you were never told that your behavior was offensive by those who heard it and/or to whom it was directed; however it is reasonable to conclude that this behavior made others uncomfortable and was offensive.”

Magee must now work without pay for 38 days at a cost of $20,559.52.

He will also be required to participate in mandatory training courses to assist in emotional intelligence, professionalism in the workplace, conflict management and leadership skills.
