Inmate charged with obscenity and sexual battery following incident with correction officer

The Lafourche Parish Sheriff's office reported inmate Codi Campbell, 28, faces new charges following an incident at the jail.

On the afternoon of Monday, August 17, Inmate Codi Campbell signaled for a correction officer to speak with him. Once the officer arrived at Campbell's cell, Campbell exposed himself to the officer. Campbell later reached through the cell bars and grabbed the officer in a sexual manner.

Campbell was subsequently charged with obscenity and sexual battery (forcible fondling). Campbell was initially arrested on January 22, and was previously being held in lieu of $38,000 bond due to charges including two counts of distribution of crack cocaine, theft and resisting an officer. His bond has now increased to $138,000 due to the additional charges.
