One day after his unexpected resignation from the Jefferson Parish Council, Chris Roberts broke his silence on Facebook, saying it was time to focus "on my personal well being and that of my family."
While Roberts did not give more specifics about he stepped down, our news partner WVUE/FOX 8 reported Monday:
A source tells FOX 8 Roberts is involved in plea negotiations involving an investigation into his finances and side businesses. Over the years, he’s had problems with creditors, the IRS, as well as campaign finance issues.
Roberts' full Facebook post reads:
The council has 30 days to find a replacement.
