Reportedly, Bienville Parish Sheriff John Ballance is getting the same runaround that Jackson Parish Sheriff Andy Brown has dealt with over the past two years concerning the Town of Jonesboro’s investigation.
Earlier this year, Stewart threatened the Jackson Parish Police Jury (JPPJ) with a lawsuit if it didn’t promptly appropriate $50 thousand to help fund his office.
One of Stewart’s assistants was last year investigated by the Louisiana State Police for allegations of sexual misconduct. The ADA’s case was brought before a grand jury, but he was not indicted. A civil lawsuit was later filed against the former assistant.
Also, a series of Lincoln Parish News Online (LPNO) reports late last year on drug asset forfeiture revealed that Stewart’s office was not properly account for the forfeited money he responsible for handling.
All this is in addition to Stewart’s refusal to pursue prosecution of his close political ally, Jonesboro’s controversial mayor Leslie Thompson.
