A judge sentenced a Belle Rose man to 18 years in prison after he pleaded guilty Monday to multiple narcotics-related charges stemming from an arrest over the summer, the 23rd Judicial District Attorney’s Office said.
Travis Franklin, 36, 267 La. 1003, was arrested Aug. 6 at his home when officers with the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Task Force found drugs and paraphernalia throughout the house, according to a District Attorney’s Office news release.
Franklin pleaded guilty to two charges — possession with intent to distribute a Schedule I controlled dangerous substance and possession with intent to distribute a Schedule II controlled dangerous substance, the news release said.
Franklin was sentenced to 18 years with credit for time served, with at least 10 years to be served without the benefit of parole, probation or suspension of sentence, according to the release.
