Tangipahoa deputy arrested for delivering crack cocaine to inmates

NEW ORLEANS – A Tangipahoa Parish deputy is behind bars after he was arrested by the Drug Enforcement Administration for intent to distribute crack cocaine.

U.S. Attorney Jim Letten said Kevin Whittington, 44, allegedly was providing drugs to inmates at the Tangipahoa Parish Jail.

Federal agents arrested him after a confidential source with the DEA gave 24 grams of crack cocaine to Whittington, who then allegedly agreed to bring the crack to an inmate at the jail, Letten said.

Whittington faces a maximum of 40 years in jail and a fine of $2 million if convicted.

Letten said the DEA is still investigating the case.

  1. In a nation wherein “In GOD We Trust” has become a mere creed on the money upon which it is printed, corruption and wickedness exist on both sides of the badge and the bars. Yet, are they bad men just because they made some bad choices? Do not all of us have A’s and F’s on our moral report cards? As I so stated on my blog, http://www.victoryNchrist.net we can’t fix it IF we can’t face it. I dare anyone who wants to fix their F’s to read that textbook in sex education and then to trust in GOD…and that’s my final answer!
