NEW IBERIA, La. (AP) - A New Iberia man says he has started a petition to remove Iberia Parish Sheriff Louis Ackal from office.
    
Donald Broussard tells The Daily Iberian that he has filed the petition with the Louisiana's Secretary of State's office to force a recall election.
    
Broussard recently helped organize a rally and voter registration drive against Ackal, who is currently facing conspiracy and civil rights charges as part of an ongoing federal investigation of the sheriff's office.
    
Ackal and two other officials have pleaded not guilty in connection with the charges. They are scheduled to go to trial Oct. 31.
    
Broussard says he is confident he will gather the more than 15,000 signatures needed to force the recall election.
