Houma man sentenced to 15 years for beating stepfather
HOUMA - A state judge has ruled that a 52-year-old Houma man should spend the maximum sentence of 15 years in prison for severely beating his 82-year-old stepfather.
State District Judge Juan Pickett ruled on Friday that Simon Fontenot will have no chance at probation, parole or a suspended sentence for the first year, according to the Courier.
A jury convicted Fontenot July 9 of aggravated second-degree battery of Millard Molitor of Houma.
The Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office arrested Fontenot after Molitor reported Fontenot attacked him the day before. He said his stepson beat him with a chair, threw him to the ground and started kicking him in the face.
Molitor was suffered multiple injuries, including facial fractures, the Sheriff's Office said. He later died from complications of a stroke.
