First African-American sheriff in St. Helena Parish history sworn-in

Friday was a big day for the citizens of St. Helena Parish. They have a new sheriff in office and they are looking for positive changes in the way he will be doing business, unlike the previous three sheriffs who all went to jail.

Several hundred residents of St. Helena Parish gathered to hear the words spoken, “Nat Williams, the first African-American sheriff to lead us for the next four years.”
