John M. “Mack” Lancaster, 5th District Attorney, reported the following felony pleas taken during recent sessions in Fifth District Court, Richland Parish. Assistant District Attorney Doug Wheeler represented the State of Louisiana. Over 30 pleas were accepted. Notable pleas are listed below.

Lancaster noted that not only were the criminal defendants held accountable for the crimes they commit but many of the cases were pretrial detainees at the Richland Parish Detention Center. By moving these cases to guilty pleas, the defendants who were ordered to serve prison time are now the supervision of the Louisiana Department of Corrections and no longer the expense of Richland Parish.
