An investigation which began in 2011 with a warrant from the uh, Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell, the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested Helen Cotton, a former Bogalusa clerk of court. She is charged with felony theft, eight counts of first-degree injuring of public records, and five counts of filing false public records. The theft was in the amount of $7,650, Cotton, 46, was booked into the Washington Parish Jail with a $15,000 bond on March 21 and released later that day with her court appearance set for May 28.
She was employed by the Bogalusa City Court for approximately 18 years and resigned her position in November 2011. City Court Judge Robert Black said his office learned of “suspicious activity” in the clerk of court’s office on Friday, Nov. 4, 2011, and reported it to its auditor, Robert Neilson, the following Monday.
The court notified the Attorney General’s office, which conducted the criminal investigation, and District Attorney Walter Reed’s office, which will prosecute the case. Black said his office has been and continues to work to discover and remedy what took place, and that the public has no reason to fear. “It is a matter of public trust,” he said. “I promptly notified the appropriate parties of the concerns, and we worked closely with them over the last 14 months,” he said.
The judge said his office has developed a plan to eliminate the shortage over the next 18-20 months by gradually transferring monies from the Judicial Expense account into the Bond account. “Although the Judicial Expense account is the court’s operating account, we do not anticipate any reduction or change in the services the court provides to the public,” he said. These 27 cases amounted to a misapplication of $7,650 and eight instances where Cotton signed Court Minute Entries which are fraudulent.”
