Kaplan police chief pleads not guilty to malfeasance, theft

Posted: Updated:
ABBEVILLE -

Kaplan Police Chief Boyd Adams has pleaded not guilty to a stealing money from his office.

Adams is accused of using nearly $7,000 in department funds for personal purposes.

Adams was set for arraignment today in the 15th Judicial District court in Vermilion Parish. Adams' attorney, Kevin Stockstill, entered a written plea of not guilty to one count of malfeasance in office.

No further court dates are set.

The organizer of a recall petition against Adams said on Thursday the recall passed its Dec. 31 deadline without enough signatures.

Adams is rounding out the end of his time in office. He did not qualify as a candidate in the upcoming March elections.
