There's a new person in charge, at least for now, at the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office
Joe Lopinto is succeeding Newell Normand as sheriff on an interim basis. Normand announced last month he would be retiring.
A March special election will be held to decide if Lopinto or someone else will take over the sheriff's post permanently.
