PRESS RELEASES - April 20, 2015  

 

 

THIBODAUX – A Thibodaux resident was sentenced to ten years in prison for indecent behavior with a juvenile on the eve of his scheduled jury trial Monday.

Brian Stickel, 51, was scheduled to begin trial Tuesday morning for aggravated rape, which carried a mandatory sentence of life in prison.

"Our goal in prosecuting sex crimes is to protect the public by removing the offender from society for as long as possible," said District Attorney Camille A. Morvant, II. "But in doing so, we can never overlook our first priority, which is the welfare of our victim. In this case, accepting a plea bargain was the best way to accommodate both of those concerns."

Stickel, who was homeless and living at a campsite at the time he committed the crime in June of 2013, was accused of assaulting the twelve-year old son of a family he was friends with.

"Cases like this illustrate the trauma that young victims experience when they have to face a predator in court," said First Assistant District Attorney Kristine M. Russell, who prosecuted the case. "Just as every case is different, so is every victim. They all handle that trauma differently. Sometimes, what’s best for the victim is to go forward with trial, and sometimes it’s best to work things out and avoid putting the victim on the stand."

Sentence was imposed on Stickel by the Hon. John E. LeBlanc.
