Cottonham Arraignment Continued

Arraignment of Town of Jonesboro Councilman-at-Large LaStevic Cottonham was continued (delayed) yesterday in Second Judicial (Bienville, Claiborne, Jackson Parishes) District Court in Jonesboro, the Jackson Parish Clerk of Court’s Office said. The hearing was “upset and refixed” until Tuesday, July 8, 9:30 AM.

Cottonham was arrested in late February on charges of driving under suspension, possession of marijuana, and possession of a firearm while in possession of illegal narcotics.

The marijuana and driving charges are misdemeanors, but the firearms charge is a felony.

The arrest occurred several days after an alleged rape at Cottonham’s home in Jonesboro.

    This is no different than any other case. Every case on the docket is delayed 3-4 times due to the court’s and attorney’s caseloads. Often an attorney will have two clients scheduled for court in different parishes on the same. One will be rescheduled. Our district courts only handle criminal matters certain days of the month. Other days are for juvenile court, child support court, civil court, etc. Typical case–1 year from arrest to trial.

    What happened to (Mayo’s puppy )Vines’ grandson who murdered a man in Vines’ front yard. This may be on hold also.
