Lafayette man convicted of laundering more than $100,000

LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY)- On February 7, 2019, a unanimous Lafayette Parish Jury convicted Michael C. Duhon of theft over $25,000 and money laundering over $100,000.

The three-day trial presided over by Judge Marilyn Castle.

The charges were filed by District Attorney Keith Stutes’ Office after an investigation led by agent Jedd Faulk of the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation produced evidence that in 2015 Duhon stole over $400,000 in retirement funds and land from the victim by fraud.

Duhon then moved the money through shell corporations and bank accounts to conceal the source of the funds.

Duhon faces a sentence of five years to 20 years for the theft and a sentence of 5 years to 99 years for money laundering. The case was tried by Assistant District Attorney Bobby Odinet.

Sentencing will be set after pre-sentence investigation is completed.
