Two Livingston Parish Men Get Harsh Prison Sentences for Drug Distribution

J’marlo Jonte Lee, of Denham Springs, Louisiana, pleaded guilty to distribution of cocaine and possession with intent to distribute cocaine.  He was sentenced to 19 years in prison.

Lee sold cocaine to a Livingston Parish sheriff’s deputy during an undercover operation.   When Lee was subsequently stopped, he threw cocaine out of the window of the car he was driving.  A hidden camera in the officer’s vehicle recorded the transaction.  At the time of his arrest, Lee was on parole for a 2007 drug-related conviction.

Michael Donahue, also of Denham Springs, pleaded guilty to two counts of distribution of crack cocaine.  He was sentenced to 20 years in prison.  Donahue also had prior drug convictions.  In June, Donahue sold cocaine to an undercover narcotics agent working with the Denham Springs Police Department.
