No Prosecution Yet for Fired JPPJ Employee

Fired Jackson Parish Police Jury (JPPJ) employee Rasheda Combs has not yet been investigated by the Second Judicial (Beinville, Claiborne, Jackson Parishes) District Attorney for allegedly stealing over $3.8 thousand from the Jury over the past two years, according to sources.

She was fired at a special March 5, 2010 meeting of the body. Assistant District Attorney Douglas Stokes was present at that meeting, according to the minutes.

In a report dated February 17, 2010 by Allen, Green & Williamson, LLP (AG&W), a Monroe CPA firm, some rental deposits for the Jackson Parish Community Center were never deposited in the bank, even though receipts were issued to the renter.

Also, records were altered to conceal the activity, Lincoln Parish News Online (LPNO) was told. That in and of itself is a criminal activity, according to RS 14:132
