BOSSIER PARISH, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – (7/25/19) Federal authorities have charged former Bossier Parish Schools Superintendent Scott Smith in connection with allegations he was illegally receiving prescription drugs by mail order.
According to a bill of information filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Shreveport, Smith is facing four misdemeanor counts of simple possession of a controlled substance.
The drugs listed in the document are all sleep and anxiety medications: Valium, Ambien, Soma, and Lyrica.
Smith, 61, retired as Superintendent in February after it became public that he was the target of an investigation involving mail-order drugs being shipped into the United States from other countries.
