Press Release -

October 4, 2016


Glenn Thompkins, 40, of Raceland, LA, was convicted of Obscenity in violation of La.R.S. 14:106, after a one day jury trial that ended on September 20, 2016.

Evidence presented at the trial, established that on the evening of December 19, 2014, Thompkins, who was incarcerated at the Lafourche Parish Detention Center at the time, intentionally masturbated in the presence of a female deputy. 

“Mr. Thompkins has been in and out of trouble for a long time.  He knows what is and isn’t allowed in jail and he chose to act in a manner that was offensive to those around him.  The laws need to be upheld even for people already in jail,” said Assistant District Attorney Ben Caillouet who prosecuted the case.

Formal sentencing is set for Thompkins on October 21st before the Hon. Walter Lanier, III, who presided over the trial.

A mail out regarding lawsuits against oil and gas companies is being sent to Lafourche Parish residents.  This mail out states that the District Attorney is being pressured to bypass the Lafourche Parish Council to file suit against oil and gas companies.  This is NOT ACCURATE.  “I have not been contacted by any person or group urging me to bypass the Council on this”, said Lafourche District Attorney Cam Morvant.  “I am the Parish’s legal advisor not the client.  Any decisions regarding filing or not filing any lawsuits involving the parish are under the exclusive purview of the parish government”.
