Michael Lacour entered a plea agreement with the DA’s office yesterday.  He had been charged with having sex with a woman on probation, helping her get money from Crime Stoppers and mishandling illegal drugs.

He avoided 20 years in prison with the plea bargain, but will still be required to pay fines and pay back the Crime Stoppers program.
