Angola employee arrested for malfeasance in office

At approximately 4:15 p.m. on Wednesday, August 13, 2014, Louisiana State Penitentiary Investigations Unit assisted the West Feliciana Parish Sheriff’s Office with the arrest of Louisiana State Penitentiary maintenance employee, Danny B. Daniel, 64, of 11646 Powell Station Road, for malfeasance in office. Daniel has been employed at the prison since 2007. His bond was set at $25,000.

No cell phones in school zones

wfpso cell phone banThere are many new state laws that went into effect on August 1, 2014, and The West Feliciana Parish Sheriff’s Office would like to highlight one: the school zone cell phone ban.

Motorists are now prohibited from using any type of hand held wireless communications device while traveling through school zones during posted hours. The law includes use of a cellular or wireless devices for engaging in a voice call, accessing, reading, or posting to a social networking site, and/or writing, sending, or reading a text-based communication. The school zone cell phone ban does not apply if the device is being used to report an emergency, is being used in a hands-free manner, or while the vehicle is lawfully parked.

Upon first violation of the school zone ban the fine is $175, subsequent violations can be up to $500, and if a crash occurs during the time of the violation, fines can be increased.

As a reminder, West Feliciana Parish school zone times are 7AM to 9AM and 2PM to 4PM Monday through Friday when school is in session.

Many statistics back up the decision to ban cell phone use in school zones. It is a proven fact that performing two or more tasks at the same time generally results in decreased performance of each task. It is also proven that distracted drivers are at 6 times greater risk of being involved in a collision when dialing a phone and at 23 times greater risk when texting. Drivers not wearing seat belts are 35 percent more likely to be distracted as compared to drivers wearing seatbelts. This indicates that unbelted drivers may perceive and evaluate risks differently or have personalities prone to risky behavior resulting in inappropriate decision making while driving.

Therefore the West Feliciana Parish Sheriff’s Office will diligently enforce the new law banning hand held wireless communication devices in school zones.
