DA Phil Haney responds to ethics charges

The Independent Weekly – Lafayette, LA

Sixteenth Judicial District Attorney Phil Haney, the first sitting district attorney to ever face charges of ethical misconduct by the Office of Disciplinary Counsel, testified on his own behalf Tuesday morning at a preliminary “fact-finding” hearing held at the Lafayette Parish Courthouse.

The hearing Tuesday is the first of three phases related to Haney’s ethics charges. Information from the hearing will be forwarded to the Louisiana Attorney Disciplinary Board, which will issue a public report that then goes to the Louisiana Supreme Court for a final decision.
