DENHAM SPRINGS, LA (WAFB) -
Livingston Parish District Attorney Scott Perrilloux says he suspended his investigation into a Livingston Parish man and turned the case over to federal authorities.
Corey Delahoussaye is accused of billing the parish for time he was not actually working. His company, C-Del Inc., made almost $2 million in two years. His company was hired by the parish to oversee debris removal following Hurricane Gustav.
Perrilloux, through a written statement, confirms federal investigators have taken over the case.
"For the past several weeks the district attorney's office has been gathering information on the billing, and payment of fees and expenses, to Delahoussaye and his company, by Livingston Parish government, with the goal of determining whether the actions of Delahoussaye constituted a violation of any criminal laws which could subject him, or others, to prosecution. After discussions with federal authorities, the district attorney's office will at this time suspend its efforts and defer the investigation of Delahoussaye and C-Del, Inc., to the appropriate federal agencies. As we have done in the past, our office will continue its cooperation with any and all agencies involved in this investigation," Perrilloux said.
John McLindon is Delahoussaye's attorney and says the now federal investigation will prove his client is innocent.
"Corey Delahoussaye has done nothing wrong it's been six weeks and to think that if they would have found something they would have found it within six weeks," McLindon said.
