News For Tuesday 06/10/14


News for Tuesday 061014

By Dave Graichen

 

The APD reports 17 people have been charged with soliciting for prostitution after a two day sting in the city. The operation was conducted by the Alexandria Police Department in conjunction with the Central Louisiana Safe Streets Task Force and FBI Task Force. Those arrested were all males and ranged  in age from 18 to 43. Officials said the operation is part of an ongoing effort to combat vice and human trafficking in Central Louisiana.

 

Some severe weather is expected across the state today as a cold front  slowly moves across Louisiana today and tomorrow.  The front brings the possibility of severe weather in the form of damaging wind, hail, and tornados. State climatologist  Barry Keim says this a late season front  that we don't see often in the Bayou State.  He says, the good news is,  we could use the rain.  Rainfall potential is in the two to two and a half in range with the  greatest possibility in southeast Louisiana. 

 

A report from the US Veterans Affairs Department indicates the average  wait times for a new patient at the three major VA medical centers in  Louisiana can run anywhere from 30 to 51 days.  Secretary of the  Louisiana Department of Veterans Affairs David Lacerte says the wait times are dependent on the hospital and the type of care that  is needed.  The report was prompted by the ongoing nationwide VA scandal  which has revealed long waiting times and falsified appointment lists at  VA hospitals. 

 

A report released yesterday by the state legislative auditor shows nursing homes rank among the worst in the nation in key quality measures, with high rates of bed sores and use of restraints among the 25,000 elderly and disabled people who live in them. In addition, the informational report said Louisiana has the lowest overall nursing staff out of all 50 states. The auditor’s report looked at occupancy rates, costs to the state and quality of care delivered at the state’s 259 Medicaid nursing facilities.

 

A  Monroe  woman  has  been  arrested  for  allegedly  stabbing  two children.   The  Ouachita  Parish  Sheriff's Office says 32-year-old Latasha Denise Hampton jumped through a closed window of a residence and began to strangle a two-year-old and then stabbed him.  Upon her arrest, police realized an 11 year old stabbed earlier in the evening was Hamilton’s son. Police say they do not believe the woman even knew the family where she attacked the child. Both victims are recovering.

 

Louisiana  has  some  of  the lowest  gas  prices  in  the  country. According to the American Automobile  Association, the average price at  the pump for regular gasoline in the  Pelican  State  is  $3.40. Only  Mississippi  and  Missouri  are  slightly lower.  Triple-A  says gas prices should remain steady through the summer months.

 

Opelousas Police have  arrested  a  31-year-old  man for the alleged rape  of an 83-year-old  woman over the weekend.  Karl Shelvin  was  booked for home  invasion  and  aggravated rape.  The victim remains in the hospital for observation.

 

Governor Jindal signs a series of bills into law he says will protect  victims of human trafficking and prosecute those to the fullest extent  of the law who exploit women and children into sexual activity. Jindal  says human trafficking crimes are on the rise in Louisiana and he  believes this legislation can have a profound impact. The governor says they've also  added 250-thousand dollars in the state budget to develop and implement  a human trafficking course.
