sanchezA spokesperson for the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office confirms Margaret Sanchez faces a new charge of harboring a sex offender.

Sanchez is one of two suspects in the death and dismemberment of a French Quarter dancer. The other suspect is Terry Speaks. He is a convicted sex offender who now faces a federal charge for failing to register.

Neither Sanchez nor Speaks has been charged with the death of Jarren Lockhart, whose dismembered body washed ashore along the beach in Bay St Louis, Mississippi. Both are considered suspects in the case.

Monday, Sanchez was also seen by workers at a mental health clinic in Hammond, according to her attorney.

Last week, state and federal investigators searched the home that Speaks and Sanchez shared in Kenner.
