LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - The District Attorney’s Office in Lafayette plans no criminal charges filed against a former school board candidate accused by her opponent of filing a phony address.

Erica Williams had run unsuccessfully against incumbent Tehmi Chassion in November 2014. Nearly a year later, Chassion filed a criminal complaint saying Williams had registered as a candidate using an address at which she did not live.

KATC-TV reported Monday (https://bit.ly/1Vw03Rs ) that the 15th Judicial District Attorney’s Office declined charges.

Williams issued a prepared statement saying there had been an attempt to “slander” her - but adding that she would continue to work with Chassion and others on behalf of Lafayette students.
