Channel 3 is running the story that Bossier City Councilman James "Chubby" Knight is resigning, and in return the DA wil not prosecute.
Bossier City Councilman James "Chubby" Knight will resign and criminal charges against him will be dismissed under an agreement between Knight and the district attorney, his lawyer said Tuesday.
Knight's resignation will be effective March 31.
Knight's lawyer, Joel Pearce, said the district attorney's office has agreed to drop bank fraud charges that allege Knight, 60, cashed a counterfeit sweepstakes check last year knowing it was worthless and also cashed two fraudulent money orders he had received in a "secret shoppers" scam.

Pearce had told The Times at the time of the arrest that "This is all driven by the Bossier power bosses . . . . that machine wants you to know if you cross it, ... it will erase you, even your memory."
He must have forgotten.
