Attorney General Jeff Landry Makes Public Corruption Arrest


BATON ROUGE, LA – Attorney General Jeff Landry today announced the arrest of former Pointe Coupee Parish Sheriff’s Deputy Adrian Slaughter.

“I have said over and over that my office will not stand for corrupt public officials, either appointed or elected,” said General Landry. “Our State’s people deserve officials who act in a way that is lawful and admirable. When their officials do not, it threatens the public’s trust in government; and we will root out that type of behavior.” 

Adrian Slaughter, 50 of New Roads, was arrested and charged with 16 counts of Payroll Fraud and 1 count of Malfeasance in Office for allegedly working extra duty details while simultaneously being on the clock at the Sheriff’s Office. He was arrested today by Attorney General Jeff Landry’s Office and booked into the Pointe Coupee Parish Sheriff’s Office Detention Center. 



Coming soon, the attorney's general office seeks to provide a mechanism by which to take online payments for collections.
