Shreveport Chief Financial Officer Has Arrest Record
The man serving as interim Chief Financial Officer for the city of Shreveport has had several run-ins with the law over the past dozen years.
KEEL News has been provided with documents outlining the past criminal history for Kasey Brown. He has been accused of illegal possession of stolen things, criminal mischief and driving under suspension.
In one of the cases, Brown was suspected of possessing a stolen cell phone. The charge was ultimately reduced to criminal mischief and dismissed.
In 2017, Brown was in trouble again. Details of that arrest have not been released, but he did notify the court that he was indigent and a public defender was appointed to represent him. The charge against Brown was dismissed.
Brown is in charge of the city's budget which is closing in on $600 million dollars. His resume shows he is not a CPA, nor is he an accountant.
Brown is paid close to $140,000, but the recent pay raise approved by the council would bump his pay to more than $155,000 dollars.
KTBS also reports Brown has had a dozen traffic violations in Shreveport, and was sent to jail in 2009 for failing to appear in court. That was on charges of driving under suspension and running a stop sign.
