A Minden woman has been sentenced to a total of 10 years for four counts of distribution in court Monday.
Twenty-sixth Judicial District Judge Jeff Cox sentenced Keidre M. Erving to 10 years at hard labor with the Louisiana Department of Corrections, all but five years suspended on the first count of distribution of a Schedule II controlled dangerous substance. The three additional counts are to run concurrent, or at the same time. The first two years are to be served without benefit.
She was also sentenced to five years of active supervised probation on all counts, to run concurrent, and must pay fines and court costs.
Erving was arrested in July 2015 following a traffic stop on a laundry list of reported drug charges. Minden Police stopped the vehicle on Evans Street and found what appeared to be drugs inside in plain view. A search of the vehicle revealed two more baggies of suspected crack cocaine.
According to police reports, 18 rocks of suspected crack cocaine, totaling six grams, and prescription pills were discovered inside the two baggies. Keidre Erving and Keundre Erving were both placed under arrest.
Police also said a 10-year-old child was in the backseat of the car.
Judge Cox also recommended substance abuse treatment.
