According to a Times article this morning by John Andrew Prime, Webster Parish ADA C. Sherburne 'Sherb' Sentell III was charged with one count each of domestic abuse battery and public intimidation-bribery.
A Caddo Parish source who is familiar with the incident, which took place at Horseshoe Casino, told us that Sentell caught the attention of a pit boss who thought he was being abusive to his wife. When Horseshoe security and Bossier City Police approached him, he attempted to use his position to influence the arrest, saying that he would throw his own charges out.
According to my source, District Attorney Marvin was called and told the police in essence that he expected no special treatment for his assistant, to let him spend the night in jail and get a duty judge to set bail on Saturday morning.
Sentell also allegedly made a threat along the lines that someone would lose their job over this.
He may have been right on that point.
