Paincourtville Man Pleads Guilty to Heroin Distribution

          On September 17, 2018, Oscar Davis of 115 Pugh St. Paincourtville, LA., age 42, pled guilty to Distribution of a Schedule I Controlled Dangerous Substance. Davis 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 2014 narcotics investigation.

           In October 2014, undercover narcotics agents under the direction of the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division purchased a quantity of heroin from a male subject identified as Oscar Davis. This purchase was made as part of an on-going narcotics investigation targeting street-level drug dealers in Assumption Parish. After making the purchase, the narcotics were placed into evidence and a warrant of arrest was obtained for Davis. Davis 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, Davis was sentenced to 15 years with the Louisiana Department of Corrections with credit for time served.
