A 25-year-old Baton Rouge man pleaded guilty to manslaughter and attempted armed robbery Monday and was sentenced to 25 years in prison in the 2012 shooting death of a local prostitute.
Cousin was accused of shooting Young multiple times in the chest during an attempted holdup in the 2700 block of Huron Street.
An affidavit of probable cause says Cousin walked away from a conversation with a male prostitute to speak with Young, a known local prostitute who was standing nearby.
Young engaged Cousin in a conversation about oral sex, which Cousin refused, the affidavit states.
Cousin then tried to rob Young with a handgun, and when Young yelled out, “I ain’t got no money,” Cousin shot him, the affidavit says.
