Followup to F.O. "Potch" Didier, Jr., former sheriff of Avoyelles Parish, LA:

from Salon.com, 2000

Louisiana is probably one of the few places in the country where Potch Didier, a sheriff from Edward's native Avoyelles Parish, could win reelection while serving a sentence in his own jail.

I tried to find if "Potch" Didier is still living. All I could find is that he talked with President Carter in 1980 -- that based on Carter's list of people that he talked with from the Oval Office. I don't know if Didier talked by telephone, or if he personally went to the office. He met with Carter through his capacity as the president of the powerful LA Sheriff's Assn., which Carter needed badly in 1980. Carter still narrowly lost LA that year.
