LEESVILLE, La. (AP) - A Vernon Parish grand jury has indicted Rosepine Police Chief James “Dennis” Parrott on charges of malfeasance and felony stalking.

The Leesville Daily Leader reports (http://bit.ly/1wfSwp5 ) the grand jury last week formally charged Parrott with two felony charges of malfeasance in office, sexual conduct, along with one count each of felony stalking and malfeasance in office.

The 49-year-old Parrott, who recently won re-election, was arrested in August after an investigation into criminal complaints against him. Parrott was accused of stalking his estranged wife and using the department’s database to illegally run a license plate number.

The Louisiana Attorney General’s Office will be prosecuting the case as the Vernon Parish District Attorney’s Office has recused itself. Additionally, all of the judges on the 30th District Judicial Court have recused themselves.
