23 Feb Golden Meadow Man Pleads Guilty in Cruelty Case During Jury Selection
Lafourche Parish District Attorney Kristine Russell announced that a Golden Meadow man pled guilty as charged to two counts of 2nd Degree Cruelty to Juveniles on Tuesday, February 22nd.
Dustin Naquin, 32, was set to begin trial this week. As the jury selection process was underway, Naquin’s attorney advised the Honorable Christopher Boudreaux that Naquin wished to change his plea to guilty.
The Honorable Christopher Boudreaux set Naquin’s sentencing date for May 11th, 2022.
Dustin Naquin, who will remain in law enforcement custody without bail, faces up to 40 years per count with the Louisiana Department of Corrections.
Since there are still pending charges against the co-defendant in this case, we will reserve any further comment until after that too has been adjudicated.
