Sorrento still with police chief and department

SORRENTO, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Efforts to revitalize the Sorrento Police Department seem to be stagnating while the police chief's position sits vacant and the days pass without anyone actively seeking liability insurance for the department.

Mayor Mike Lambert said Tuesday that the governor's office is having a difficult time finding a replacement to serve out the rest of former Police Chief Earl Theriot Jr.'s three year-term.

Theriot resigned in February and pleaded guilty to lying to an FBI agent about inappropriate sexual contact with an intoxicated woman the chief had picked up after a call on Nov. 1.

Lambert says the governor's office has released little information about the search, even declining to share with him the names of people they have considered to fill the vacancy.
