Former Probation and Parole Officer Arrested for Malfeasance in Office

Investigation by the LBI Results in Felony Arrest 

BATON ROUGE, LA - The Louisiana Bureau of Investigation (LBI), under the direction of Attorney General Jeff Landry, today arrested a former Tangipahoa Parish Probation and Parole Officer. 

“Our elected and appointed officials are expected to respect the public’s trust and follow the law,” said General Landry. “My office is dedicated to investigating crimes and bringing to justice those who break the law, especially public servants who abuse their power. I am proud of my LBI agents for their professionalism and dedication to ending public corruption.”

Shane Chaisson, 39 of Robert, was arrested on one felony count of Malfeasance in Office. While working as a Probation and Parole Officer, Chaisson allegedly engaged in sexual conduct with a person under the supervision of the Department of Public Safety and Corrections. He was arrested and booked into the Livingston Parish Jail as a Fugitive from the LBI. Chaisson was later transferred to Tangipahoa Parish Jail.   


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