Former Prosecutor Suspended

The Louisiana Supreme Court suspended on an interim basis an attorney who was the subject of this December 2017 KTBS-ABC story

A prosecutor for the City of Shreveport has been fired after his arrest on charges he used his position to solicit sex from a woman who was facing charges in the court where he worked.

Andrew Adams, 29, of Shreveport, was arrested by the Shreveport police vice squad Wednesday afternoon and booked into Caddo Correctional Center on charges of malfeasance in office, abuse of office and soliciting for prostitution.

 Adams was released Thursday after posting $30,700 bond. He was fired earlier in the day by City Attorney William Bradford.

Authorities said Adams used the offer of leniency in a City Court case to convince the woman to have sex with him. They did not disclose details about the charges against the woman or the disposition of her case.

 Adams prosecuted misdemeanor criminal and traffic cases in Shreveport City Court.
