Assumption Parish Man to Serve 24 Years in Prison Following Narcotics Arrests

          On March 18, 2019, Bradley Worley of 6039 Hwy 308 Paincourtville, LA., age 28, pled guilty to Distribution of a Schedule I Controlled Dangerous Substance and Possession of a Schedule I Controlled Dangerous Substance. This guilty plea was the result of a plea agreement with prosecutors following a series of arrests. Worley was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Thomas Daigle, and presiding over this matter was the Honorable Judge Thomas Kliebert.

           In January of 2017 during the course of an on-going narcotics investigation targeting street level drug dealers in Assumption Parish, an undercover narcotics agent under the direction of the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division, purchased a quantity of heroin from Bradley Worley. The narcotics was collected, tested, and placed into evidence. Following the deal, agents secured a warrant of arrest for Worley. Worley was subsequently arrested and booked into the Assumption Parish Detention Center.

           On December 24, 2018, patrol deputies with Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle after observing the driver commit multiple traffic violations. As deputies attempted to stop the vehicle, the driver was observed throwing a small bag out of the window. The driver pulled over shortly after. A second deputy located the bag thrown from the vehicle which contained a quantity of heroin. Upon making contact with the driver of the vehicle who was identified as Bradley Worley, deputies conducted a pat-down of Worley’s person for officer safety. During the pat-down, deputies located another clear plastic baggie containing a quantity of heroin. Worley was subsequently arrested and booked into the Assumption Parish Detention Center.

           Upon entering a guilty plea to the above-mentioned charges, as per the plea agreement with prosecutors, Worley was sentenced to 24 years with the Louisiana Department of Corrections with credit for time served.
