Bond has been set for the woman booked in connection with the Quawan Charles case.
Janet Irvin was booked yesterday with contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile and failure to report a missing child. Today she appeared via Zoom before Judge Lewis L. Pitman, who went over the charges against her and set a bond of $300,000 for the failure to report charge and $100,000 for the contributing charge.
If Irvin posts her $400,000 bond and is released, she will be given an arraignment date, a clerk spokeswoman said.
Sheriff Tommy Romero released the following in a video statement Wednesday afternoon:
This morning, I was informed that Janet Irvin was arraigned in the 16th judicial court. The judge has set her bond at $400,000. I want the public to understand that anyone who has been incarcerated has a bond set, and if they can meet that bond, they have the right to bond out. At this time Janet Irvin has not met that bond.
I want to ensure the residents of Iberia Parish that your sheriff's office has collected the appropriate evidence needed by law enforcement personnel to legally obtain an arrest warrant for Janet Irvin, not relying on any private investigator's finding. This investigation continues."
