The Louisiana Supreme Court has declined to hear an appeal by suspended Lafayette City Marshal Brian Pope, who was convicted on malfeasance in office charges two years ago. The Third Circuit Court of Appeal had already denied Pope's appeal, meaning he has run out of options and will have to serve a one- year sentence in the Parish Jail, although that sentence might be altered or delayed due to Coronavirus. Pope was convicted for funneling money meant for his office to his personal bank account and he still faces trial on more than a dozen similar charges.
