KFDM learns little league board member charged with delivery of marijuana following sleepover involving minors
HARDIN COUNTY - KFDM News has learned a board member of the Twin County Youth Baseball League in Sour Lake is out of jail on a $10,000 bond after investigators charged her with delivery of marijuana.
They tell KFDM's Justin Hinton that Laejana Nikole Cormier, 35, of Sour Lake, provided the marijuana during a sleepover at her home on May 2.
Investigators say the minors attend Henderson Middle School in the Hardin Jefferson ISD.
Sour Lake Police Chief Larry Saurage told us this is a first-a board member of the baseball league accused of providing marijuana to minors.
According to the probable cause affidavit obtained by KFDM News, Nikki Cormier hosted at least eight juveniles at her home in Sour Lake on May 2. They were all participating in a sleepover. Based on the affidavit, several of the baseball players gave sworn statements. They said at some point, Cormier gave marijuana to four of them. Those statements were all made separately.
If convicted of the Class B Misdemeanor she could face up to 180 days in jail and/or up to a $2,000 fine.
One parent, who asked to remain anonymous, said her son was at the house during the sleepover. She says he did not receive marijuana but witnessed the events, which she says included more than just marijuana.
"He broke down and told me he witnessed the mom with one of the boys on the team on the couch making out and groping," she said. "He's still having a hard time because she was someone he looked up to."
Chief Saurage says he's still investigating the case.
