PRESS RELEASES - January 21, 2015

THIBODAUX – A woman seeking to have her 2009 convictions for the killing of her two young children set aside has been denied relief by a Lafourche Parish judge.

Amy T. Hebert, who is currently serving two consecutive life sentences at the Louisiana Correctional Institution for Women in St. Gabriel, Louisiana, was seeking a new trial based on a number of allegations she made in a standard post-conviction relief application. The dismissal of those claims brings to a close her attempts to attack the convictions at the state trial court level.

"We have fought these post-conviction claims with the same intensity that we prosecuted both the trial and appeal," said District Attorney Camille A. Morvant, II. "It’s a reminder that not only is it important to the family of the victims to secure a conviction, but also it’s just as vital that we fight to maintain the validity of that verdict throughout the post-trial process."

Hebert was convicted of two counts of first degree murder in 2009 after a two-month trial, and her convictions were affirmed on appeal in 2011.

Some of the defendant’s most recent allegations had been dismissed earlier in response to procedural objections lodged by the Lafourche Parish District Attorney’s Office. The remainders of the defendant’s claims were dismissed without a hearing by the Hon. Jerome J. Barbera, III on December 29, 2014. Barbera retired from the bench at the end of 2014. (Read More...)
