Livingston Parish officials arrest 3 on suspicion of drug-related charges

In our last post, we wrote about how two Baton Rouge residents were charged with trying to smuggle drugs into Dixon Correctional Institute. Now, just a week later, we have a similar story on which to report.

Three people were recently arrested by Livingston Parish sheriff's deputies after trying to smuggle drugs into the parish jail.

It isn't clear if they were working together or were all working independently, but all three people are now facing drug-related charges over the incident:

  • One man has been charged with attempting to enter contraband into a penal institution and attempted possession with intent to distribute synthetic marijuana.
  • A second man has been accused of entering contraband into a penal institution and intent to distribute synthetic marijuana.
  • A woman is alleged to have tried to bring contraband into a penal institution.

If these people did try to bring synthetic marijuana to someone in jail (and please note that is an "if" since we don't yet know whether they actually did), that was not a wise move. But then again, casual marijuana use seems to be tolerated in so many sectors of society that perhaps they did not realize the magnitude of their actions. Also, synthetic drugs are something of a gray area to many laypeople -- since they're synethic, it isn't clear to many average people whether they're illegal. In any event, it might be a good move for them to work with a criminal defense attorney to face the charges against them.

Our office helps people around the Lafayette area after they have been accused of drug offenses. Drug-related charges are intimidating, of course, and are often very difficult for people to understand. We make sure we take the time and care to explain everything thoroughly to our clients so they understand what they are up against. If you would like to learn more about our approach to criminal defense, you may want to visit the Drug Charges page of our website.
