November 21 - Press Release
THIBODAUX – A
Larose man convicted in October for the sexual battery of a juvenile victim
was given a lengthy prison sentence Thursday afternoon.
Christopher Odis, 45, was sentenced by the Hon. Walter
I. Lanier, III to serve 75 years in prison, with the first twenty five to be
served without the benefit of probation, parole or suspension of sentence.
“Our office put a lot of work into this case with the
goal of getting a predator off the streets for a long time,” said District
Attorney Camille A. “Cam” Morvant, II. “We’re satisfied that the judge’s
sentence does that.”
First Assistant Kristine Russell, who prosecuted the
case, was hopeful that the sentence would send a message to juveniles who
find themselves the victim of crime.
“Children need to know that the system works for them,”
she said. “I hope that when they hear of a case like this, they realize
that the District Attorney’s Office will do everything we can to support
them, and when we’re successful at getting a conviction, the court will hand
down a punishment that reflects the harm they’ve experienced.”
