Former Officer Convicted

Posted:

Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell says a Vermilion Parish Jury has found a former Delcambre Police Officer guilty of sexual battery and second-degree kidnapping.

Friday's conviction of 53-year-old Ernest Billiot stemmed from a 2008 incident in which Billiot abused his authority to detain and commit sexual acts upon an Erath woman.

A pre-sentence investigation was ordered, and a sentencing date has not yet been set.

Billiot faces a maximum sentence of 40 years for the second-degree kidnapping charge and a maximum 10 years in prison on the battery charge.

Billiot was denied a post-trial bond.
