Last week, Legistine Key of Napoleonville, LA., age 31, pled guilty to Distribution of a Schedule II Controlled Dangerous Substance. Key was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Thomas Daigle, and presiding over this matter was the Honorable Judge Thomas Kliebert. This guilty plea was the result of a plea agreement with prosecutors following a narcotics investigation targeting street level drug dealers in Assumption Parish.
In April 2018, undercover narcotics agents under the direction of the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division, during the course of an on-going narcotics investigation, purchased a quantity of crack cocaine from a male subject identified as Legistine Key. Upon completion of the deal, the narcotics was submitted into evidence and a warrant of arrest was issued for Key. Key was subsequently arrested and booked into the Assumption Parish Detention Center.
Upon entering a guilty plea to the above-mentioned charge, as per the plea agreement with prosecutors, Key was sentenced to 6 years with the Louisiana Department of Corrections with credit for time served.
