A group of Iberia Parish residents has launched an effort to recall Sheriff Louis Ackal.

The sheriff, reached Friday afternoon after he had been working all night on what he called a “senseless murder,” said he “couldn’t care less” about the recall.

Donald Broussard, vice-chair of the recall effort, said his group wants the sheriff, who is facing federal civil rights charges alleging mistreatment of prisoners in the parish jail, to step down.
