Parish President enrolled in diversion program after DUI arrest

ST. CHARLES PARISH, LA (WVUE) - St. Charles Parish President Larry Cochran has enrolled in the Jefferson Parish District Attorney's adult diversion program after his DUI arrest in 2017, according to a spokesman with the DA's office.

Kenner Police arrested Cochran around 1 a.m. on Sept. 2, 2017 after a witness called 911 to report a 2016 Chevy Tahoe with public licenses plates, driving erratically on Loyola Avenue.

Kenner Police Department revealed blood tests after Cochran's arrest found he had Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, and oxymorphone in his system.

We reached out to Cochran for comment and are awaiting his response.

The Adult Diversion Program lasts six months, participants are subject to random drug/alcohol tests, and they must meet with a D.W.I. victim.  The participant must also have an interlock device install on their car ignition for three months.
