BATON ROUGE, La. – The lawyer for former Louisiana State Police Superintendent Kevin Reeves has agreed to turn over Reeves’ journals containing notes from his meetings as the state’s top cop under the condition that they remain under seal.
As part of the agreement, the House and Governmental Affairs Committee agreed to defer a resolution holding Reeves in contempt of the Legislature if he complies by a 4 p.m. deadline on Friday.
Under the agreement, Reps. Tanner Magee of Houma and John Stefanski of Crowley, both Republicans, will be permitted to inspect the journals at the office of Reeves’ lawyer, Lewis Unglesby.
The inspection will determine if any of the pages contain sensitive information, like Social Security numbers, which could then be excluded. The rest of the journals will return to the Capitol with the lawmakers by tomorrow’s deadline.
