SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - A former DeSoto Parish School Board member has pleaded guilty to a cocaine distribution charge.
Twenty-five-year-old Bartholomew Claiborne, of Mansfield, faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison following his guilty plea Thursday.
A federal indictment in September accused Claiborne of selling cocaine more than a dozen times between October 2011 and July 2012.
His sentencing is set for May 21.
