COLFAX, La. (AP) - The former police chief of Colfax has been sentenced following his arrest on charges of malfeasance in office, obstruction of justice and theft of a firearm.

Charles Stickell, 44, was in office when he was arrested in October 2013. The Town Talk reports (https://townta.lk/12GnPC7 ) that Grant Parish District Attorney Jay Lemoine recently announced the convictions.

Stickell was sentenced to five years at hard labor for both the malfeasance and obstruction charges, but those sentences were suspended. The theft of a firearm conviction brought a seven-year sentence, with five years suspended. The former chief will serve two years of home incarceration. Stickell was ordered to pay a fine of $1,500.

Stickell was accused of taking evidence from the Colfax Police Department and selling or pawning the items off.
