The series of reports aired in 2019 is the culmination of six years of reporting about one of the most powerful sheriffs in the state of Louisiana. WLL & The Times-Picayune's reporting uncovered a lack of supervision of inmates in a corrupt work release program that led federal investigators to take action and open an investigation into the programs. That federal investigation took a dark turn, resulting in allegations of sex crimes the sheriff entangled in the work release programs. The sheriff failed to win re-election after their reporting and the work release programs were shut down.
