June 23, 2014 - Press Release  

THIBODAUX – A man convicted in late May of charges stemming from a domestic abuse altercation was sentenced to serve ten years in prison Thursday.

Joshua Tillman was found guilty by a Lafourche Parish jury on May 28 of domestic abuse by aggravated assault with child endangerment as well as second degree battery.  The charges arose in the wake of an incident at an area motel on November 2, 2012.  Tillman was accused of beating and seriously injuring a female victim in the presence of two minor children, both of whom were under the age of thirteen years at the time of the crime.

Tillman was sentenced to five years at hard labor on both counts by the Hon. Jerome J. Barbera, III, with the sentences to be served consecutively.  The sentences on both counts were the maximum provided by law.
