Gag order prevents open discussion
A gag order has been issued by the courts preventing any open commentary by the legal system.

Sampognaro was first arrested on Jan. 13 and then arraigned on April 4 by Judge Emile St. Pierre after a lengthy investigation led by both federal and local authorities uncovered 58 digital computer files of child pornography from his personal computer.
Before his arrest earlier this year, Sampognaro was employed as a physician at three separate medical facilities: the St. Charles Parish Hospital in Luling, the Family Doctors Clinic in Harvey and at West Jefferson Medical Center.
