Former Bunkie police chief to plead 'not guilty' to malfeasance charges
Former Bunkie chief of police, Bobby Corner, is set to plead 'not guilty' on Tuesday at the Avoyelles Parish Courthouse to charges of malfeasance in office, malfeasance in office by tampering with evidence, first-degree injuring public records, and tampering with surveillance systems.
The information comes from Corner's attorney, Mike Small, to News Channel 5.
Corner, 48, served one term as the chief of the Bunkie Police Department, but lost the re-election last April.
According to Louisiana State Police, Corner allowed multiple pieces of evidence to be unsecured, misplaced, and lost in the Bunkie Police Department’s building.
He also failed to introduce certain items into the evidence room, mishandled a felony case file, failed to process traffic citations, tampered with the Bunkie Police Department’s surveillance system, and shredded official department files.
