The Ascension Parish Jail is a detention center located at 2384 Lemanville Cutoff Rd Donaldsonville, LA which is operated locally by the Ascension Parish County Sheriff's Office and holds inmates awaiting trial or sentencing or both. Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Ascension Parish County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Donaldsonville Police Department, and the US Marshal's Service.

New detainees arrive at the jail regularly, with some being released on bail, placed under pretrial services caseloads, supervised by probation agencies, or released on recognizance with a court appearance agreement. Those who are not released await their court appearances at the jail, receiving accommodations including bedding and meals. You can see all the arrest records for Louisiana here.

This jail held 54 offenders which included 16 beds for female offenders. Sam Latino was the first Warden of the new jail and held this position until 1979 when Robert LeBlanc Sr. was named Warden. Warden LeBlanc served as Warden until 1984 when Detective E.J. Hahn was named Warden. During his tenure, Warden Hahn supervised a $5 million jail expansion project completed in 1989. This addition increased the capacity of the jail from 54 to 192 offenders. Warden Hahn continued in his role as Warden until 1992 when David Cambre was named Warden and served in this position until 1996. Sheriff Jeff Wiley appointed Bobby Webre as Warden in 1996.

In 2007, the jail once again exceeded its capacity. In 2008, the jail conducted its second expansion project at a cost of $9 million. The new addition to the jail doubled its capacity and now accommodates 572 offenders.
