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.
