LIVINGSTON, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Prosecutors have filed 81 formal charges against a former Livingston Parish contractor accused of falsifying billing invoices and theft related to parish Hurricane Gustav cleanup work.

District attorney's office filed a bill of information Tuesday charging Corey Delahoussaye with 73 counts of filing or maintaining false public records and eight counts of theft.

The bill says the false public records were filed between July 2010 and September 2011.

The action comes about two weeks after a Livingston Parish grand jury, on an 8-2 vote, declined to indict Delahoussaye in the case.

The newspaper reports District Attorney Scott Perrilloux and Delahoussaye declined comment Thursday about the formal charges.
