A Galliano woman was sentenced to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to multiple drug charges.
Kimberly Crochet, 36, of Galliano, pled guilty to two counts of possession with intent to distribute Methamphetamine yesterday in court.
As part of her plea deal accepted by the Honorable F. Hugh Larose, the suspect was sentenced to 10 years in prison for one count and 5 years on the other, making for a combined 15-year sentenced that will be served consecutively with the Department of Corrections.
The suspect was arrested in Feb. 2016 by the Thibodaux Police Narcotics Division after they found methamphetamine during a search warrant executed at a hotel room she was staying at in city limits.
In May 2018, she was arrested again on more meth charges after the Lafourche Parish Drug Task Force conducted a search warrant at her home on West 152nd Street in Galliano.
“Hopefully the message is clear – drug dealing is not tolerated in Lafourche Parish,” said Assistant District Attorney Shaun George, who prosecuted the case. “We want to thank the Lafourche Parish Drug Task Force and the Thibodaux Police Narcotics Division for their hard work on these cases. It does not go unnoticed.”
Kimberly Crochet will immediately begin the first of her two sentences with the Department of Corrections.
