Louisiana judge found guilty of crimes against juveniles
LAPLACE, La. (AP) — A Louisiana judge has been convicted of four sex crimes involving juveniles.
The Times Picayune/The New Orleans Advocate reports Saturday’s verdicts ended a trial where three young woman alleged state District Judge Elzey “Jeff” Perrilloux touched them inappropriately. Perrilloux denied the accusations.
Jurors debated for an hour before finding the 53-year-old jurist guilty on three counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile. Ad hoc Judge Dennis Waldron found the defendant guilty of a fourth count, misdemeanor sexual battery.
