FOR IMMEDIATE NEWS RELEASE

NEWS RELEASE # 029

FROM: CLERK OF THE SUPREME COURT OF LOUISIANA

The Opinion handed down on the 27th day of April, 2007, is as follows:

 

BY KIMBALL, J.:

2006-KK-2383 STATE OF LOUISIANA v. GEORGE KING
(Parish of Lasalle) (Malfeasance in Office)
For all of the above reasons, we find defendant has proved by a preponderance of the evidence that the district attorney should be recused pursuant to La. C.Cr.P. art. 680(1). Consequently, we find the trial court erred in denying the motion to recuse the district attorney. Accordingly, we affirm the court of appeal’s order granting defendant’s motion to recuse the district attorney and remanding the case to the trial court for further proceedings.
AFFIRMED AND REMANDED.

VICTORY, J., dissents and assigns reasons.
TRAYLOR, J., dissents.
KNOLL, J., dissents for the reasons assigned by Victory, J.
WEIMER, J., concurs in the result and assigns reasons.
