OBERLIN, La. (AP) - Former Oberlin Mayor Rick Smith has been cleared of any criminal wrongdoing after an eight month state police investigation.
Allen Parish District Attorney Todd Nesom told the American Press (https://bit.ly/T7XPJY ) Thursday that police found the allegations against Smith to be unfounded.

He resigned as mayor in January.
