Homer Mayor Arrested for Malfeasance

On March 24, 2014, investigators with the Louisiana State Police Bureau of Investigations arrested the mayor of Homer, LA for six (6) counts of malfeasance in office. The arrest is a result of a joint investigation conducted by the Louisiana State Police, Louisiana Legislative Auditor’s Office, and the Claiborne Parish District Attorney’s Office.

In early March 2014, investigators began an extensive review of the town of Homer’s records. The review revealed 41-year-old Alecia Smith of Homer used her position as mayor to misuse public funds from 2011 to 2013.

Smith took trips that were not related to town business which were paid for in advance by the town of Homer. She then used the town’s credit cards for expenses incurred during the trips. Smith falsified public records to justify the expenses in order to get reimbursed.

Investigators also discovered Smith used city of Homer credit cards to download audio files and data to her personal computer, all of which were non-work related expenses. Additionally, Smith failed to pay water bills owed to Homer in excess of $800 which was a violation of the town of Homer policy.

Investigators obtained arrest warrants and arrested her for six (6) counts of malfeasance in office. Smith was booked into Claiborne Parish Detention Center.

If convicted, Smith faces up to 30 years in prison and/or a fine of up to $30,000 and may have to pay restitution.

    I wonder if the NFL will try to copyright “The Perp Walk” like they tried to do with “Who Dat!” It appears to be getting pretty popular in the black mayor crowd. Anybody know if Jamie Mayo’s been practicing for his debut?
