COLUMBIA, La. (AP) — A northeast Louisiana district attorney is stepping aside from prosecuting a former employee accused of stealing from his office.

Caldwell Parish District Attorney Brian Frazier tells The News Star that he will let the attorney general’s office handle the case against Sharon Lovett.

The Louisiana Legislative Auditor’s Office says Lovett stole at least $17,238 in cash and money from the department’s worthless check restitution unit.

She was arrested on charges of malfeasance, theft and injuring public records. Lovett is free on bail. It’s unclear if she has a lawyer.

The auditor’s office says Lovett admitted taking the money and told auditors that she got rid of receipt books to hide amounts taken.

Frazier says Lovett was fired in September and he reported the suspected theft to the auditor then.
