How Could Something Like This Happen?
When you are in jail and you are meeting with an attorney the lawyer can carry in items needed like a briefcase that should be holding things like legal documents and papers, only items like that.
Fontenot told KPLC,
So, for example, their briefcase, they get to bring a briefcase in, where normal visitors don't get to bring that in, something that can conceal.
As far as what can and can't be brought into the facility Fontenot says he can't give details about that information other than the above comment.
The judge set Brown's bond at $175,000.
