The man who has been serving as compliance director at the Orleans Parish jail under a federal consent decree is stepping away from the job.

Gary Maynard is calling it quits, the judge who accepted his resignation saying he's dissatisfied with the "pace of reform" at the jail. 

The judge named Darley Hodge to take over as acting compliance director.

It was about two weeks ago when a report from federal monitors of the jail termed it "critically unsafe."
