ST. CHARLES PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

A FOX 8 source said a well-known businessman was arrested Monday by St. Charles Parish deputies.

The source said the arrest of John Landry, who also serves as chairman of the St. Charles Parish Hospital Board, is connected to the federal case against former St. Charles District Attorney Harry Morel.

The source said Landry provided falsified community service documents for some women connected to Morel. Morel pleaded guilty in April to a federal obstruction charge following allegations that he used his position of power to trade leniency for sexual favors.
