Convicted killer back in custody over house arrest
GONZALES - A judge ordered convicted killer Stanley White to serve two months in jail Monday after White violated the terms of his house arrest.
The judge in Gonzales ordered White serve 60 days in jail after the family of his victim said they spotted White at a restaurant earlier this year.
White killed a 10-week-old child in a 1994 wreck in which investigators said he'd been drinking. He pleaded guilty to negligent homicide and received a two-year sentence, but never served the time due to a paperwork mistake.
Two decades later White was taken back into custody in Louisiana. His attorney claimed because the state messed up he shouldn't have to serve his sentence, and reached a deal where he would serve two years of house arrest instead of the prison sentence.
In January, the victim's family said they were eating at IHOP in Baton Rouge when they saw White complaining to a manager about his order. The state attorney general filed a motion to have his house arrest revoked, which led to Monday's decision.
The judge ordered Monday that after serving 60 days in jail White will remain under house arrest, with new conditions.
