PINEVILLE, La. (AP) - Sarah Smith has been named acting city marshal in Pineville following the July 20 death of Marshal Larry Jeane.
The Town Talk reports Smith has worked in criminal justice in Pineville for more than 20 years and was serving as chief deputy marshal at the time of Jeane's death.
Pineville Mayor Clarence Fields says Smith's extensive work in the city's court system prepared her for the job.
Jeane died in a car crash.
