Some state lawmakers are calling for Napoleonville Senator Troy Brown to resign immediately after he entered a plea of no contest to domestic violence charges. Senate President John Alario says Brown was suspended from serving on committees when he was arrested in July, and that suspension has been extended until the Senate reviews the case and makes a decision. He says the Senate has the power to remove Brown from office.
