Longtime Pearl River Mayor ... [cached]

Longtime Pearl River Mayor James Lavigne and town clerk Diane Bennett Hollie both pled guilty to theft and malfeasance charges, after an indictment against them in 2014.

Lavigne had been mayor since 1990 and was indicted on four counts of malfeasance in office, two counts of unauthorized use of a movable over $500 and theft over $500, according to the St. Tammany Parish Clerk's office. He pled guilty in September to all charges and was given a five-year probation sentence after appearing in court with an oxygen tank, needed due to increasing health problems he has faced in recent years.

James Lavigne, the former mayor of Pearl River, Louisiana, ended 2014 with a bang. According to the New Orleans Advocate, Lavigne had a rough year that included an indictment, questions about his spending, and losing an election after six terms in office. Lavigne's farewell speech on New Year's Eve was no less eventful. The newspaper reported the mayor called for an "emergency" meeting of the local Board of Aldermen on Wednesday to give his final address. He was surprised when reporters began showing up and started "demanding" to know how they found out about the meeting.

"Facebook can kiss my ass, and you too and Channel 4 news," Lavigne responded. After encouraging Facebook and the local media to embrace his posterior, Lavigne reportedly got into his car and drove away. A member of the Board of Aldermen then read his speech, which the Advocate said was "five pages of single-spaced copy" and included his explanation for his spending.
