A former Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Deputy was booked into the Ascension Parish Jail on Friday after video surfaced of the deputy hitting an inmate during a contraband search. 

As you can see in the video, 50-year old Livingston Alfred hit an unidentified 25-year old inmate multiple times inside the Ascension Parish Jail. 

The inmate suffered minor injuries and was transported to a local hospital for treatment.

APSO said, “in accordance with personnel policy, Alfred received disciplinary sanction and was placed on leave without pay pending an investigation.”

After the conclusion of the investigation, a warrant was issued for the arrest of Livingston Alfred.

Alfred had served in the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office for over 9 years.

During that time, Alfred held the rank of staff sergeant and worked jail security as a corrections officer.

The investigation also led to the resignations of two APSO employees.

The first involved the warden, David Dykes.

According to the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office, Dykes voluntarily “resigned from his position as warden.”

Dykes had served in the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office for 12 years.

The second voluntary resignation involved Jeffery Rogillio. 

APSO said Rogillio “resigned from his position as Lieutenant of jail security.”

Both resignations were a result of disagreements “with their supervisors on jail protocols and procedures,” according to the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office.
