Roxsana Urban, 50, a resident of Highway 38 in Mt. Hermon, was arrested by the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office. Urban, an employee of the Sheriff’s Office Jail Division, was terminated earlier this month and then arrested on June 24 after an investigation into unaccounted funds was completed. She was booked into the parish jail on a charge of Malfeasance In Office and later released on a $5,000 bond.
Sheriff Randy Seal commented, “Ms. Urban violated the public trust and we arrested her just as we would any other person who committed a similar crime. We cannot, and will not, differentiate between our employees and anyone else. Any person who violates the law in Washington Parish is subject to arrest. While we take no delight in such arrests, we have taken an oath to fairly enforce the law and that is what we must do. From my first day in office, I have promised fair and effective law enforcement and that is exactly what we have done.”
