Arraignment set for 2 men indicted in federal steroids case

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Arraignment is set Tuesday for a Bossier Parish School Board member and another man indicted in a federal steroids case.

District 5′s Michael S. “Mike” Mosura, of Bossier City, and Brant R. Landry are scheduled to be back in U.S. District Court in Shreveport at 9 a.m. that day, court records show.

A detention hearing for Landry is set at the same time.

The two men and Julie Landry are named in an indictment filed Sept. 27.

The five-count document alleges that:

  • they conspired to distribute anabolic steroids;
  • Brant Landry possessed and manufactured anabolic steroids and possessed a gun in relation to a drug-trafficking offense; and,
  • Julie Landry removed steroids from a residence in anticipation of the dwelling being searched. 

Mosura was absent from the School Board meeting Thursday.

When Mosura and Brant Landry appeared in federal court at 3 p.m. Wednesday, the court appointed the federal public defender’s office to represent them since they lack the financial resources to retain their own attorney, court records show.

Also during the 40-minute hearing, Brant Landry was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending the detention hearing.

And Mosura was ordered released on a $25,000 unsecured appearance bond and was ordered to surrender his passport to the federal clerk of court by 3 p.m. Friday.

On Thursday, a Caddo School District spokeswoman says, Julie Landry was placed on paid leave after notifying the district that she had been arrested.

Summerfield Elementary’s website shows Julie Landry teaches fourth grade at the Shreveport school.

And state records indicate Mosura and Brant Landry are officers/members of Louisiana Empire Management LLC and are among four officers/members of Louisiana Empire Development LLC.
