RAPIDES PARISH -- On Friday, Louisiana State Police Bureau of Investigations arrested Stacy Bender (W/M 48 yrs) of Boyce, a deputy with the Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office.

He was charged with malfeasance in office (six counts), solicitation for prostitution (two counts), inciting prostitution, obstruction of justice, and unlawful use of criminal records (two counts).
