THIBODAUX – The last of three perpetrators of two
crimes of violence against a Raceland woman in 2012 was convicted of
aggravated rape and armed robbery after a three-day jury trial Friday.
“This conviction closes the book on an outrageous
crime, and I can think of no more fitting punishment for this
perpetrator than to spend the rest of his life in prison,” said District
Attorney Camille A. Morvant, II.
“While this was a horrendous ordeal for the victim and her son,
she has been very brave throughout these proceedings, and was
instrumental in bringing all three perpetrators to justice.”
