Brock Doucet of Prairieville was found guilty of creation or operation of clandestine methamphetamine laboratory and possession of a schedule II drugs last month.  Doucet faces a possible life sentence due to his prior convictions.

Creation of methamphetamine lab and manufacturing meth are serious felony charges in Louisiana.  They carry a sentencing range of 5-15 years in prison.

In Louisiana, creation or operation of a clandestine laboratory for the unlawful manufacture of a controlled dangerous substance is any of the following:

(1) The purchase, sale, distribution, or possession of any material, compound, mixture, preparation, supplies, equipment, or structure with the intent that it be used for the unlawful manufacture of a controlled dangerous substance.

(2) The transportation or arranging for the transportation of any material, compound, mixture, preparation, supplies, or equipment with the intent that such material, compound, mixture, preparation, supplies, or equipment be used for the unlawful manufacture of a controlled dangerous substance.

(3) The distribution of any material, compound, mixture, preparation, equipment, supplies, or products, which material, compound, mixture, preparation, equipment, supplies, or products have been used in, or produced by, the unlawful manufacture of a controlled dangerous substance.

(4) The disposal of any material, compound, mixture, preparation, equipment, supplies, products, or byproducts, which material, compound, mixture, preparation, equipment, supplies, products, or byproducts have been used in, or produced by, the unlawful manufacture of a controlled dangerous substance.

Ascension Parish sheriff’s deputies arrested Doucet on Oct. 1, 2010, after searching his home due to a complaint that someone was cooking meth at his home.

Sheriff’s detectives found methamphetamine-smoking pipes, baggies containing methamphetamine, digital scales and two bags containing items used to manufacture methamphetamine.

Prosecutors said the two felony convictions were Doucet’s sixth case where he has a felony conviction and said they plan to file a multiple offender bill under which Doucet could receive a life sentence.

A multiple offender bill, also known as the Habitual Offender Law, enhances the sentences for those convicted of second or subsequent offenses or those with prior felony convictions within the last ten years, prior to the commission of the current offense.

If you or someone you know is facing drug charges, contact Baton Rouge Criminal Defense Attorney Carl Barkemeyer to discuss your case.  You may be facing charges such as possession, possession with intent, or distribution of drugs.
