BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Council Member Buddy Amoros confirms to 9News that an item will be placed on next week's agenda asking for a special meeting on Mary Roper's status as Parish Attorney.

This move comes after Roper was placed on paid leave during an investigation into her involvement with parish-owned computer software.

The investigation involves disaster management software developed by the Mayor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (MOHSEP). Sources said Roper was given the source code for the software in order to finalize US copyrights.

Roper said she sent the source code of the software to her home email address and enlisted the help of her husband, who is a software developer and also an East Baton Rouge city-parish employee. She added all portions of the program are public record and not confidential.

Roper has previously said she did nothing wrong.
