The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office has issued an arrest warrant for former New Orleans state Rep. Sherman Copelin Jr. charging him withtheft and misapplication of payment in the amount of $832,421. Investigators obtained the warrant on Friday, according to Col. John Fortunato, spokesman for the Sheriff's Office.
A court ruled that officers did not have enough information to know whether or not stealing violates the Constitution.
It took a jury 26 minutes to decide that Jonathan Vanderhagen wasn't guilty.
This vote is "a hopeful sign that the harmful policies of marijuana prohibition will soon be a relic of the past."
Jonathan Vanderhagen believes a judge doomed his son to an early death. The judge says Vanderhagen's Facebook posts were intimidating.
