2005 Sabine Co. meth felon back in jail

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A Bronson man under supervised release in the federal court system is back in jail after authorities filed a revocation motion against him.

The attorney for Floyd Charles Lout, 42, has in turn filed a motion for a psychiatric exam, saying he does not understand why he is back in custody.

A grand jury indicted Lout in 2005 on a charge of possession of a listed chemical, alleging he had pseudeophedrine with the intention of it being used to make meth.

Lout pleaded guilty to the crime in January 2006 and a judge sentenced him to 63 months in federal prison in April 2006, followed by three years of supervised release.

According to his attorney's motion, Lout violated a condition of his release by not reporting contact with law enforcement within 72 hours to his probation office.

A hearing on the motion has not yet been set.
