Former sheriff’s deputy pleads not guilty in alleged off-duty detail scheme

April 5th 2016

“NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) – A former Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office colonel pleaded not guilty Tuesday in an off-duty detail scheme. He is charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud.

  • Effective Monday, Orleans Parish Sheriff Marlin Gusman accepted the resignation of his second-in-command, Chief Deputy Jerry Ursin. The resignation came after the Louisiana Legislative Auditor released a report critical of the way the Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office handles off-duty details worked by its deputies.

    Sources said Ursin is expected to face federal charges soon in connection with the detail program after an investigation by the FBI.”
