(The AEGIS Alliance) – An ex-DEA agent whose profession finished in shame and 2 different criminal convictions has been sentenced to thirteen years behind bars as of Thursday.
Age 53 Chad Scott, recognized as one of Louisiana’s drug traffickers, and referred to as “white devil,” was previously convicted of obstructing justice, official misconduct as well as perjury, and theft, along with other criminal offenses, before his prison sentencing.
While employed by the DEA for 17 years, Chad Scott stole cash and also property from folks he apprehended and when it came to his activities in official documents, he had lied, the Department of Justice pointed out in a news release. In one instance, Scott lied in the course of the hearing of a purported heroin dealer, making it possible for the male suspect to get away with the charges, the Associated Press wrote.
“Chad Scott took an oath to serve his community with integrity, but rather than use his badge to protect his community, he used it to break the law,” DEA Administrator Anne Milgram pointed out in the DOJ statement. “Scott betrayed the very people he was entrusted to protect and today he is being held accountable for his crimes.”
Scott belonged to what is now revealed to be a blatantly corrupt and operating from outside the law drug administration task force located within Louisiana. Three additional crew members were also found guilty in a federal courtroom; 2 turned on Chad Scott and gave testimony against him.
Johnny Domingue, who is among one of the male suspects, that had initially been apprehended in 2016, flipped against Chad Scott, served his prison sentence, and after that got apprehended around 18 months later and faced charges of cocaine dealing in Texas.
