Judge blocks attempt by West Feliciana Parish jurors for HRC re-vote

ST. FRANCISVILLE, LA (WAFB) - Judge William Carmichael in West Feliciana Parish has upheld the injunction on the home rule charter issue.

He said jurors cannot call for a repeal vote on the home rule charter (HRC) that voters approved last November.

Some jurors wanted to send the issue back to voters for a do-over, so voters filed suit against the jurors who wanted a re-vote in October.

Carmichael ruled voters already voted for the home rule charter and it will stand, meaning the parish is going away from its current police jury system.
