ASCENSION PARISH, LA — The Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office is continuing its efforts in the parish to arrest individuals that are failing to appear in court after being arrested on felony and misdemeanor criminal charges. The ongoing initiative is “OPERATION NO SHOW.”
Persons who are arrested on criminal charges are entitled to a bond. Upon bonding from jail the individual is given notice to be in court on a specific date.
The following individuals ignored their court date which subsequently led to a bench warrant being issued by the court for failure to appear in court:
Christopher Ray Neal, 26, of 44049 Loop Road, Prairieville is wanted on a felony bench warrant for carnal knowledge of a juvenile, sexual battery, and indecent behavior with a juvenile.
Emmanuel Castillo, 28, of 15371 Palmetto Lane, Prairieville is wanted on a felony bench warrant for aggravated criminal damage.
Stacy Smith, 24, of 17138 Pen Boulevard, Prairieville is wanted on a felony bench warrant for distribution of CDS IV.
Ronald Mcclure, 18, of 36324 Timber Ridge Drive, Prairieville is wanted on a felony bench warrant for attempted manslaughter, two counts Illegal use of weapon, eight counts attempted murder one, and aggravated criminal damage to property.
In an effort to reduce these felony bench warrant numbers, each week the Sheriff’s Office is airing a photograph and name of a person that has failed to appear in court.
