Thibodaux Man Sentenced on Narcotics Charges in Assumption Parish

          On April 26, 2017, Jarrod Sanchez of 410 Winder Rd. Thibodaux, LA., age 25, pled guilty to Possession of a Schedule IV Controlled Dangerous Substance and Possession of a Schedule II Controlled Dangerous Substance. Sanchez was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Thomas Daigle, and residing over this matter was the Honorable Judge Jason Verdigets. This guilty plea was the result of a plea agreement with prosecutors following a 2016 call for service. 

          On October 18, 2016, Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to the Jubilee convenience store located at 105 Hwy 70 Spur Plattenville, LA. in reference to a male subject sleeping inside of a vehicle at the gas pumps. Upon arrival, deputies located the subject who was still asleep inside of the vehicle. Deputies opened the door of the vehicle and attempted to wake up the subject inside, who was identified as Jarrod Sanchez, but were unsuccessful. While monitoring Sanchez and waiting for Acadian Ambulance, deputies observed a glass pipe, commonly used for using illegal narcotics, loaded with Methamphetamine, and several clear plastic baggies containing Methamphetamine residue sitting on top of the center console in plain view. Deputies also observed a small black pouch on Sanchez’s lap containing several Xanax and Hydrocodone pills. Sanchez was transported by Acadian Ambulance to Assumption Community Hospital to be evaluated. Upon release from the hospital, Sanchez was booked into the Assumption Parish Jail. 

          Upon entering a guilty plea to the above mentioned charges, as per the plea agreement with prosecutors, Judge Verdigets ordered that Sanchez be committed to the Louisiana Department of Corrections for a period of 19 months with credit for time served on each count. It was further ordered that the imposed sentences are to run concurrent with one another.
