Inmate serving mandatory life sentence released from Madison Parish jail

Law enforcement officials in Ascension Parish are trying to figure out why a man convicted of murder just five years ago has been able to walk free for months despite his charge carrying a mandatory life sentence.

Michael “Ma-Man” LeBlanc was released from jail in Madison Parish back in May. Sheriff Bobby Webre says law enforcement officials don’t know LeBlanc’s current whereabouts or how he was released. It’s suspected it was some kind of paperwork snafu.
