August 4, 2014 - Press Release  

THIBODAUX – A Thibodaux man accused in a string of vehicle burglaries in late 2013 was sentenced to twelve years in prison after a guilty plea Friday afternoon.

Keith Williams, 22, was charged with breaking into several vehicles in the Highland Lakes, Waverly, Bayou Country Club and Midway subdivisions during the month of December.

"Burglaries of this sort are troublesome for victims, who wake up to find that they have been violated, their vehicles damaged and their belongings gone," said District Attorney Camille A. Morvant, II. "We take these cases various seriously and hopefully this sentence will act as a deterrent to other neighborhood predators."

Williams pled guilty to eight counts of simple burglary in May and returned to court for sentencing Friday before the Hon. Walter I. Lanier, III. The defendant had previously been convicted of conspiracy to commit simple robbery and simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling.

"This case was easy to prosecute because of good work by Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office detectives," said Assistant District Attorney Steve Miller, who prosecuted the case.

"Williams acted as a Grinch, running from neighborhood to neighborhood trying to steal Christmas," said Miller, noting that the crimes happened during the holiday season. "The punishments he received for his prior offenses were not adequate to deter his selfish behavior. Hopefully, this sentence will have the desired effect."
