Sheriff will not investigate Delhi mayor

Posted: Updated:

DELHI, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Richland Parish Sheriff Lee Harrell says he will not launch a formal investigation into Delhi Mayor Lynn Lewis' handling of the town's finances.

Four Delhi aldermen requested in a letter that the sheriff investigate Lewis for reported violations of the state's budget laws. Harrell says he reviewed the allegations with state police, the District Attorney's Office and the Louisiana Legislative Auditor's Office and decided not to investigate.

The sheriff says there was nothing that appeared to be criminal.

The aldermen signed a letter asking for the investigation after several projects ran over budget. They also claimed they were not given access to the town's financial documents.
