St. Charles Parish President Larry Cochran released the following statement regarding being charged for a 2017 D.W.I. arrest:

“Yesterday, I made the decision to resign from participating in the diversion program. That decision was made so I could finish receiving medical procedures for the injuries sustained in the motorcycle accident I was involved in last year. This decision did not come lightly.

“However, it is one that I needed to make, so I can take ownership of the incident, allowing me and my family to move past it, and to also finish receiving medical treatment needed to fully recover.

“I am deeply sorry for the negativity or embarrassment that this has brought to our community, parish employees, and most of all to my family and friends.

“St. Charles Parish government will continue to conduct business as usual and will continue to strive to provide high quality, efficient services to sustain and enhance the quality of life for all residents.”
