A man who was in jail on drug, theft and resisting arrest charges is facing new charges after he exposed himself and grabbed an officer in a sexual manner in the Lafourche Parish Detention Center.

On Monday afternoon, 28-year-old Codi Campbell signaled for a correction officer to come speak with him. Once the officer arrived, Campbell allegedly exposed himself to the officer. 

Deputies say Campbell later reached through the cell bars and grabbed the officer in a sexual manner.

He was then charged with obscenity and sexual battery.

Campbell was initially arrested on January 22, 2015 and was being held in lieu of a $38,000 bond. He was charged with two counts of distributing crack cocaine, theft, and resisting arrest.

His bond has now increased to $138,000 because of the additional charges.
