Belle Rose Man Pleads Guilty to Illegal Firearm Possession Charge

          On June 20, 2017, Adonis Jarvis of 334 Tigerville Ln. Belle Rose, LA., age 26, pled guilty to the charge of Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon. Jarvis was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Shawn Bush, and presiding over this matter was the Honorable Judge Alvin Turner Jr. This guilty plea was the result of a plea agreement with prosecutors following a 2014 narcotics related search warrant in Donaldsonville. 

          On December 3, 2014, Narcotics Agents with the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant at a Donaldsonville residence as part of an ongoing narcotics operation. During the search of the residence, agents located a male subject identified as Adonis Jarvis. When Jarvis spotted the agents, he fled on foot. Agents gave chase and apprehended Jarvis following a brief foot pursuit. While conducting a pat-down of Jarvis for officer safety, agents located a loaded .38 special revolver in Jarvis’ rear pant pocket. Jarvis was arrested and subsequently booked into the Ascension Parish Detention Center. 

          Upon entering a guilty plea to the above mentioned charge, as per the plea agreement with prosecutors, Judge Turner ordered that Jarvis be committed to the Louisiana Department of Corrections for a period of 10 years at hard labor with credit for time served. It was further ordered that the imposed sentence is to be served without benefit of parole, probation, or suspension of sentence.
