Toney Request to End Probation Early Denied

West Monroe -- A federal judge is denying former Ouachita Parish Sheriff Royce Toney's request to end his probation early.

Toney pleaded guilty last August to nine misdemeanors and was sentenced to six months of home detention and electronic monitoring for six months. He was also ordered to have four years of supervised probation.

Toney has served his home detention and earlier this month asked that his probation also end.

Federal prosecutors argued against the request saying Toney has only served one quarter of his sentence and it's to soo to end it.

Judge Robert James agreed, saying it's not in the best interest of society to terminate supervised probation at this time.

Judge James did say Toney can motion for earky termination no earlier than November 13, 2014 if he continues to comply with the terms of his supervision.
