Department of Public Safety and Corrections
Disciplinary Board Appeal

Appeal Number:
Inmate's Name: Patrick Brasseaux, #329406
Inmate's Counsel: Galbraith
Board Chairman: Stroud
Rule Violation: 12/21/06
Disciplinary Board Action: 1/08/07
Appeal Decided: Mar 28 2007
Decision of the Secretary: 01-Denied
Institution: LSP

The inmate was convicted of violating Rule #30W, (General Prohibited Behavior) resulting in a custody change to maximum, working cellblock.

On appeal, the inmate argues whether the investigation was supported by facts or just allegations and whether the Disciplinary Rules and Procedures is unconstitutional in denying him due process.

We have considered the inmate's argument and the decision rendered by the Warden. Upon review, we find the disciplinary report to be clear, concise and to provide convincing evidence of the violation as charged. The inmate has not produced any convincing evidence that would justify reversal or modification of the decision rendered through the disciplinary proceedings. The Warden's Appeal Decision has adequately addressed the issues raised by the inmate. The sanction imposed was appropriate based on the seriousness of the offense. For the foregoing reasons, we agree with the decision of the Disciplinary Board and the Warden.

This appeal is denied.

  2. They must produce a convincing evidence. Else they would face difficulty later on.
