Former Sheriff Sentenced

Posted: Updated:

WINN PARISH, La.—Former Winn Parish Sheriff Bodie Little was sentenced to more than 13 years in prison Friday.

U.S. District Judge Elizabeth E. Foote handed down a sentence of 13 years plus 4 months in prison and 3 years supervised release.

Earlier this year, a jury found Albert D. "Bodie" Little guilty on one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine, one count of possession with intent to distribute five grams or more of methamphetamine, and two counts of the use of a communication facility to facilitate drug trafficking.

Little was indicted along with ten other defendants in July of 2011 following an

Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) undercover investigation,

nicknamed "Little Honor," that was conducted by the Drug Enforcement Agency Task

Force along with Region II of the Louisiana State Police. OCDETF is a joint federal, state and local cooperative approach to combating drug trafficking and in this case involved the United States Drug Enforcement Administration, Louisiana State Police, Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office, Shreveport Police Department and the Bossier City Police Department.

All of Little's co-defendants have previously pled guilty and have been sentenced.

"When law enforcement officers disregard the law, it hurts all citizens. Former Sheriff Little knowingly chose to break the law and now he is paying the price for his betrayal of the trust the citizens of Winn Parish placed in him. We hope that this case, and the sentences imposed, sends a message that drug trafficking and corruption of those charged with protecting society from such crimes will not be tolerated and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law," says U.S. Attorney Stephanie Finley.
