Man Jailed On Manslaughter Charge

Posted: Updated:

LAFAYETTE, La. - United States Attorney announced Thursday that David Lamour Logan, 19, of Leesville, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Richard T. Haik, to 37 months in federal prison and three years of supervised release for involuntary manslaughter.

In July 2011, the Fort Polk Department of the Army Police responded to a one vehicle collision just inside the boundary of the Northwestern University Fort Polk branch campus and property that formerly belonged to Fort Polk.

According to reports, Logan, who was the operator of the vehicle, failed to follow the curving highway and ran off the road into a wooded area.

The passenger of the vehicle, Vernon Scoggins, III, 19, of Hornbeck, La., died from injuries sustained in the accident. Logan was intoxicated at the time the accident occurred and admitted that he had consumed a large amount of beer and "spice," a material laced with synthetic cannabinoids, prior to the collision. Police reports state that this caused him to pass out and lose control of the vehicle.

Logan was charged in a one-count indictment in Oct. 2011 and pled guilty on May 30 to involuntary manslaughter.
