SHREVEPORT, La. (KLFY) – Jury selection is underway in Shreveport for the trial of Iberia Parish Sheriff Louis Ackal.

He is the only remaining defendant to be tried this week on charges connected to the alleged beatings of prisoners at the Iberia Parish jail.

Nine former employees of the sheriff’s office pled guilty earlier this year to federal charges over the jail beatings.

The 16th Judicial District Attorney has dismissed more than 100 criminal cases connected to these nine employees.

KLFYs Dalfred Jones is in Shreveport today covering the trial and will have an update on today’s events tonight on News 10 at 5 p.m.
