One of the two St. Landry Parish School Board members accused of allegedly trying to bride a candidate for the superintendent's job in the parish is asking a federal judge to toss out his charge.

Quincy Richard Senior filed court papers Monday arguing that prosecutors are overstepping their bounds because he contends this case is one that should be prosecuted at the state level.

A hearing about the matter has not yet been set on this issues.

In November, both Richard and fellow school board member John Miller, pled not guilty to federal bribery charges.  The allegation is that both tried to bribe a superintendent's candidate with 5,000 dollars in exchange for their favorable vote.
