A 9:30 AM, Wednesday, December 12 hearing has been set in Second Judicial (Bienville, Claiborne, Jackson parishes) District Court in Jonesboro, on a motion for contempt and sanctions against Town of Jonesboro mayor Leslie Thompson and Alderman-at-Large LaStevic Cottonham.
See here the order.
The motion was filed late last week by Louisiana’s Attorney General (AG), who is the plaintiff in the case State of Louisiana v Jonesboro. In that action, the district court ruled last July that a Fiscal Administrator should be appointed to oversee the town’s finances.
See here the motion for contempt and for sanctions.
Along with the motion was filed a 22 page exhibit that consists of several reports generated by Fiscal Administrator William Ryder during the approximately two months he was on the job.
