Ascension Parish Sheriff candidate C. J. Matthews openly asks, “What if this was your daughter?” entailing former Deputy Corder’s texts and whether parents would be content for it to be, “just swept under the rug.”

Ascension Parish Sheriff Candidate C. J. Matthews

First, we want to thank everyone for the tremendous interest in installment one of our series in which Ascension Parish Sheriff Candidate C. J. Matthews alleges corruption entailing sexually explicit texts (and an apparent intentionally-botched sting operation) between a 16-year-old Donaldsonville High School female and former Sheriff Deputy Fred Corder.  Mr. Matthews’ video on that feature, at 799 views as of the publication of this second installment, is one of our most-viewed videos within a week of publication!

As we indicated we would, today is installment two, and here it is:

August 1, 2023:  Ascension Parish Sheriff candidate C. J. Matthews continues his exposing of what he alleges is rank corruption within the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office entailing a cover-up of activities of a prior Sheriff Deputy, Fred Corder, and a then-16-year-old Donaldsonville High School female student regarding inappropriate text messaging and an allegedly-intentionally-botched “sting” operation to pursue prosecuting Corder.
