Touchet sentenced in Jan. conviction


A Louisiana man found guilty on one charge of possession of a firearm by a felon was sentenced Friday, two-and-a-half months after he was convicted by a jury.

Brent Allen Touchet, 36, of Westlake, La., was sentenced to 10 years community supervision, and credited two days served.

Touchet was stopped on Hwy. 287 for a traffic violation, at which time law enforcement officers noticed a handgun magazine in the vehicle. Touchet consented to a search of the vehicle, during which officers found a pistol and ammunition.

Touchet was convicted of a felony offense of robbery on Jan. 24, 2003 in Calcasieu Parish, La.

The sentencing phase of the trial was delayed so that the defense would have time to arrange testimony from Touchet’s family in Louisiana.
