Jefferson Parish President Michael Yenni returns from Naval Reserve assignment

Still from commercial. Still from commercial.
JEFFERSON PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

Jefferson Parish President Michael Yenni tells Fox 8 that he has returned from his out-of-state assignment with the United States Navy. 

Yenni was deployed as a part of the Naval Reserve as a part of the military response to Hurricane Matthew.

News of his deployment came just a day after he was absent from a Jefferson Parish Council meeting discussing allegations that Yenni sent explicit text messages to a 17-year-old boy.

The council, as well as Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand, have since called for Yenni’s resignation.
