Press Release -

THIBODAUX –  A Lafourche Parish Jury trial came to an early end Wednesday when the defendant pled guilty to two felony charges rather than continue with the case.

Travis Solet, a resident of Gray, La., was standing trial for an aggravated rape which was alleged to have occurred on April 6, 2015. On the second day of trial, the defense approached prosecutors Diana Sanders and Heather Hendrix about the possibility of the defendant changing his plea. After consulting with the victim, prosecutors agreed to amend the charged offense to the lesser crimes of false imprisonment with a dangerous weapon and domestic abuse aggravated assault.

"It (the trial) ended in the best interest of the victim," said Sanders. "She was a big influence on why we settled it."

In exchange for the plea, Solet was sentenced to serve a total of fifteen years in prison. On the count of false imprisonment with a dangerous weapon, Solet was sentenced to ten years in prison. He was also sentenced to serve five years on the domestic abuse aggravated assault, with the sentences to be served consecutively.

"We were ready to go forward," Sanders said, noting that the State had already begun calling witnesses to the stand when the defendant indicated he wished to plea. "But she (the victim) was very satisfied with the fifteen year sentence."

It is not the policy of the Lafourche Parish District Attorney’s Office to release the names of victims in sexual assault cases, nor any other identifying information related to the investigation.
