Dave Peralta's ex-wife appears before grand jury

CHALMETTE, LA (WVUE) - Saint Bernard Parish President Dave Peralta's ex-wife appeared in court Tuesday morning as an investigation into her former husband went back in front of a grand jury.

Prosecutors have said the grand jury's considering possible conspiracy, witness intimidation, malfeasance in office and obstruction of justice charges against Peralta.

He already faces sexual battery and stalking charges stemming from allegations by his ex-wife, Sharon Schaefer.

Sources said the attorney general's office subpoenaed a handful of parish employees, questioning them about working under Peralta. Sources also said the grand jury is expected to meet again next week.
