Judge recuses himself in White case
GONZALES- A judge assigned to a hearing to decide if a man should serve prison time for a deadly car crash 19-years ago has recused himself.
Judge Thomas Kliebert was to preside over Stanley White's hearing. Instead, Judge Jesse LeBlanc will handle the case.
White was convicted for the crash where a child died. White was sentenced in July 1995 and sentenced to 24 months.
While he appealed, he was allowed to remain free.
Even though appeals were denied, White never reported to prison.
The Attorney General requested a judge have White serve his sentence.
The district attorney in Ascension Parish has also removed his office from the case.
