Federal prosecutors have a decision to make whether to go after ex-DEA agent Chad Scott again.
A mistrial was declared Monday in the trial of the former agent after jurors failed to reach a verdict.
Scott is accused in a seven-year conspiracy of stealing property and money taken during investigations, reports WVUE.
According to NOLA.com, Scott faced two counts of falsification of government records, related to a Ford pickup truck the prosecutors said was “a gift … from a dope dealer,” three counts of obstruction of justice — related to accusations Scott induced false testimony at a hearing and trial for an alleged drug supplier, Jorge Perralta — and two counts of perjury, related to Scott’s testimony in the Perralta case.
