Concordia Parish Sheriff's Office gets "D" rating in audit

Posted: Updated:

VIDALIA, La. (KNOE 8 News) - The Concordia Parish Sheriff's Office gets low marks on an audit of the 2012 fiscal year.

The "D" rating is a result of a variety of financial issues within the department in the 2012 fiscal year all under administration of former Sheriff Randy Maxwell. He's speaking out about the findings, like W-2 forms not being correctly filed.

"That was a mistake that we discovered, quite frankly, our CPA's missed it," says Maxwell.

He also commented on issues like missing financial records, and money spent at restaurants on the department credit card.

Some issues cited in the audit, like breaking Nepotism law's by employing a family member, Maxwell says he can't explain.

"I don't know what it's talking about right there, quite frankly, I mean I just honestly don't," says Maxwell.

Maxwell says his daughter-in-law worked for him in the sheriff's office, but she worked there for years prior to her marriage to Maxwell's son.

As for the other findings in the report Maxwell says his administration corrected the other issues, prior to his leaving office in June 2012 after serving 24 years as sheriff.
