Former TPSO Employee Pleads Guilty to Bribery Scheme

United States Attorney Duane A. Evans announced that Sonja Dyson Evans, age 58 and of Ponchatoula, pled guilty on March 24, 2021 to use of an interstate facility with intent to carry on unlawful activity.

Evans was employed by the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office as a Criminal Records Division Supervisor.  From January 2016 through January 2017, Evans, along with a co-defendant, Shawanda Dove, used cell phones to carry out a bribery scheme. Evans  solicited and accepted bribe money from Dove in exchange for fraudulent bonds used for the release of incarcerated persons.

Evans faces a maximum penalty of five (5) years incarceration, a $250,000 fine, a three (3) year term of supervised release, and a mandatory special assessment of $100.00.
