Civil Deputy Charged with Theft and Malfeasance in Office

A former civil deputy of the St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s Office was arrested Wednesday, December 7, 2022 after it was discovered she had misappropriated more than $5,000 in court fines and fees over a two-week period while working as a clerk in the civil administration division.
La'Daysha Everson, 29, of Edgard was charged with theft and malfeasance in office after an investigation by the SJSO Criminal Investigations Division. Everson, who worked for the SJSO for three months, was fired Tuesday, December 6, 2022 after she admitted to the offense and returned the more than $5,000 in cash to investigators.
“Her actions are very disappointing,” Sheriff Mike Tregre said. “It is my responsibility to ensure our officers are held to the highest standards. Misconduct by officers will not be tolerated, and the St. John Sheriff’s Office will always hold its employees accountable anytime wrongdoing is discovered.”
Last week, Everson’s supervisor in civil administration discovered discrepancies in the processing and handling of court fines and fees. Sheriff Tregre immediately initiated an investigation. Based on investigation, detectives obtained sufficient probable cause to arrest Everson. She was taken into custody on December 7, 2022 and released the same day on a $15,000 bond.
