East Baton Rouge Parish officials have filed notice of their intent to appeal a judge’s ruling concerning evidence gathered during the course of a criminal investigation of former Police Chief Dewayne White involving a city-parish cellphone White failed to return after his Feb. 6 dismissal.
The Parish Attorney’s Office said in court documents filed Tuesday that state Judge Chip Moore did not have jurisdiction to bar the city-parish from releasing information contained on the cellphone of Kim McCants, a Zachary woman, who was linked to White.
Less than (48) hours later, this appears to have been the nail in the coffin. I suspect he likely knew the appeal would have overturned Moore's ruling and thus allowed his dirty laundry to air out.
