Jackson Jones has been sued by the Louisiana Board of Ethics for misrepresenting items on his candidacy form in his bid for Parish President. The suit is to challenge his candidacy for non-payment of a $2500 fine that the Board levied against him when he failed to file a 2014 Tier 2 Candidate Personal Financial Disclosure Statement when he ran in 2016.
The Hearing is at 10AM on Tuesday, August 20 at the Natchitoches Parish Courthouse. This case was first assigned to Division A, but Judge Dyess recused as Jones was a former client. Judge Sylvester is still out so it will be heard by Judge Eric Harrington as judge pro tempore as appointed/ordered by the Supreme Court. A copy of the petition has been posted on the Clerk of Court door per statute La.R.S. 18:1406(D).
