An Acadia Parish police juryman is wanted for failing to appear in court this morning for a debt-collection hearing regarding money he owes to the Louisiana Ethics Board.
A.J. Credeur, who serves on the Acadia Parish Police Jury, was fined $2,500 in connection with his 2008 personal financial disclosure statement, said Ethics Board Administrator Kathleen Allen.
The Ethics Board turned the debt over to the state Attorney General's Office for collection. There was a hearing scheduled in Acadia Parish this morning for Credeur's case, but Credeur was not in attendance.
A spokesman for the AG's office said a warrant for Credeur's arrest was issued after he failed to appear.
Credeur tells KATC that he was unaware of any court date.
"I knew nothing about it," he said during a phone interview from the National Association of Counties conference in New Orleans. "I didn't get a subpoena or anything."
