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."
