GONZALES — A Gonzales man was sentenced to 30 years in prison in the 2005 rape of a 12-year-old girl, according to a release from the 23rd Judicial District Attorney’s Office.

Alan Joseph Boudreaux, 39, whose address on the 2006 bill of indictment was listed as 1909 U.S. 61, Gonzales, pleaded guilty to a charge of forcible rape on April 18.

Twenty years of the sentence is to be served without benefit of parole, probation or suspension of sentence, according to 23rd Judicial District Judge John L. Peytavin’s ruling.

Deputies say man pointed gun at them

PAINCOURTVILLE — Undercover deputies arrested a Paincourtville man on firearm and drug violations after a brief standoff at an intersection Tuesday night, Sheriff Mike Waguespack reported Wednesday.

The deputies were patrolling Belle Rose when they began following a 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass with no license plate that appeared to be speeding, according to a Sheriff’s Office news release.

When the driver halted at a stop sign on Georgetown Loop Road, the deputies approached the driver, Robert L. Fair Jr., 37, 171 Myles St., Paincourtville.

Fair then jumped from the car, pointing an assault rifle at the deputies, the release stated.

When the deputies identified themselves as law enforcement authorities, Fair dropped the rifle.

Deputies found several loaded magazines for the rifle in the vehicle, along with four bags of suspected marijuana.

Fair was arrested on counts of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

Fair was held Wednesday in the Assumption Parish Detention Center in lieu of $75,100 bail.

Prairieville man gets 17 years for burglary

GONZALES — A Prairieville man facing about 20 burglary or theft counts in Ascension Parish pleaded guilty to one of them this week and was sentenced to 17 years in prison, a prosecutor said Wednesday.

Assistant District Attorney Kenneth Dupaty said prosecutors in Ascension billed Jeffery Scott Roddy, 27, 44079 Loop Road, Prairieville, as a multiple offender, making him eligible for an enhanced sentence.

Dupaty said Roddy also had prior burglary and theft convictions.

Roddy pleaded guilty at the Ascension Parish Courthouse in Gonzales on Monday to one count of simple burglary. Judge John L. Peytavin of the 23rd Judicial District then handed down Roddy’s sentence.

By statute, the maximum sentence for a simple burglary conviction is 12 years, Dupaty said.

He said Roddy was convicted on a count stemming from the burglary of Harcot Construction in Prairieville.

Roddy was seen covered in mud and running down the road on which Harcot is situated, placing him at the burglary scene, Dupaty said.

Ascension sheriff’s deputies arrested Roddy on July 14, 2010, prosecutors said in a news release.

Dupaty said prosecutors accused Roddy of burglarizing Harcot at least one other time.
