Orleans Parish sheriff's official reassigned pending federal probe
Orleans Parish Sheriff Marlin Gusman announced today that he has reassigned a top deputy pending a federal probe into contracts related to a temporary jail facility. John Sens, the brother of Municipal Court Judge Paul Sens, has been reassigned to "security and administrative duties," according to a news release. The Times-Picayune last week reported that a federal grand jury has handed out subpoenas to contractors as a part of a criminal probe into how work was doled out for the temporary jail project. Several sources with direct knowledge of the investigation say it's focused on John Sens.
