‘There Could Be Some Serious Consequences’ Says St. Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby Guidroz
John Miller and Quincy Richard are accused of trying to extort money from Acting Superintendent Joseph Cassimere in exchange for their votes in the superintendent election. That election was scheduled for Wednesday night but has been cancelled.
Guidroz says his office is not involved in the probe, but can say these are serious charges:
If all this comes out to be proven as true in the court then there could be some serious consequences for the defendants.
Guidroz says the two school board members allegedly offered to sell their votes for $5,000.00 each. The sheriff says the FBI has not released many details about their investigation. "On that document particularly, it said basically that the acting superintendent was allegedly approached by two school board members requesting money in exchange for their votes, to vote for him for school superintendent," says Guidroz.
