BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A former Louisiana septic tank contractor and a former state septic system inspector have been indicted in Baton Rouge federal court on charges related to an alleged series of bribes totaling about $50,000.
U.S. Attorney Donald J. Cazayoux Jr. tells The Advocate 71-year-old Glenn Kelly Johnson is the former contractor, who now lives in Brookhaven, Miss.
Also indicted was 52-year-old Alan Forrest Pogue, of Covington, La. He is a former septic system inspector.
The indictment alleges that Pogue accessed computer databases of the Onsite Wastewater Program to make handwritten lists of applicants for permits to install septic tanks. Johnson is alleged to have paid cash for those lists.
Johnson then solicited business from the applicants named on those lists.
It was unclear whether the men have attorneys.
