HOUMA, La. - A former Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's deputy's request to see DNA evidence from the investigation that led to his conviction on a sex charge has been rejected by a state district judge.

Fifty-one-year-old Glenn Brunet was convicted in 2007 of carnal knowledge of a juvenile. The former sergeant was accused of having sex with a teenager from South Terrebonne High School. He is serving a 10-year prison sentence.

The Houma Courier reports that Terrebonne District Judge Johnny Walker denied a motion on Wednesday that would allow Brunet to see a copy of the DNA analysis reports and one-half of the DNA samples taken during the investigation.

Assistant District Attorney Ellen Daigle Doskey said the law cited in the request was for pre-trial proceedings, not for after a conviction.
