A former employee with the East Baton Rouge Parish Public Defender’s Office was arrested Friday for allegedly providing a cell phone to a first-degree murder suspect awaiting trial in Parish Prison.After reading the story, I'm still not clear on whether she was actually an investigator or some sort of interviewer since there seem to be conflicting opinions from law enforcement and the Public Defender's office.
Samantha M. Moore, 40, 622 S. 14th St., Port Allen, gave Derrick Williams a cell phone during one of eight visits with him at the jail between Aug. 4 and Aug. 22, an arrest warrant says.
East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff’s deputies working at the prison found the phone Aug. 24 in a cell, the warrant says. During the deputies’ investigation, the phone was tied to both Moore and Williams.
I'll try and follow-up with the story to see what happens.
