Update: Court records say Lafayette City Marshal Brian Pope was not required to post any bond after he was booked last month after his indictment.

Our news partners at KATC report Pope was indicted on two counts of perjury and three counts of use of public funds to urge electors to vote for a candidate. His bond was set at $25,000 but records show Pope was released "on his own recognizance" and was not even required to post the $15 fee.
