Cashiered Monroe City Judge Up For Promotion?

A sitting Monroe City Court Judge who was once removed from office may be the handpicked candidate of the Ouachita Parish political/legal “combine” to replace Fourth Judicial (Morehouse, Ouachita Parishes) District Division H Judge Benjamin Jones, who is reportedly retiring at the end of his current term late this year.

Larry Jefferson has been tagged for the promotion, sources are telling Lincoln Parish News Online (LPNO).

In 1999, the Louisiana Supreme Court removed Jefferson from office for engaging in “conduct that was prejudicial to the administration of justice that brings the judicial office into disrepute.”

See here the document.

However, Jefferson subsequently ran again for the office and was elected.

Jones is either at or near the mandatory retirement age (70) for judges.
