Sledge accused of fund fraud


A judge has removed Roland Sledge, Chambers County attorney with the District Attorney’s Office, as the conservator for an underage client, after allegations he may have mismanaged funds.

Chambers County Circuit Court documents indicate the fund was managed by Sledge, an attorney who also worked as an assistant DA for Chambers County. Sledge was appointed conservator for a minor in August 2007. A conservator is someone a judge appoints to care for the finances of someone who cannot care for the money themselves.

The court documents state, “Upon review of the records, it appears, the funds in both bank accounts have been mishandled, misused, misappropriated and in actuality, embezzled.”
A hearing on the allegations will be held on July 27.
