Convicted killer appears in court for house arrest violation

GONZALES- A convicted killer who violated conditions of his house arrest, appeared in a Gonzales courtroom Tuesday for a probation revocation hearing.

Judge Jessie Leblanc asked the Attorney General's Office to come up with a list of possible sanctions for Stanley White for disobeying her orders. White was filmed at IHOP on Siegen Lane last month by the victim's family. A letter obtained by the Investigative Unit shows White's probation officer notified White he was in violation.

White killed two month old Brittney Deville 20 years ago after crashing into the car she was riding in. A paperwork error allowed White to roam free without serving a day of that 20 year sentence.

"How many more times do we have to come here and tolerate this?" Brittney's mother, Rachel Deville asked.

Deville was visibly upset. She wants closure in this case.

"It's draining," Deville said. "We've been at this for two years, going to be two years we have been down this path."

Once some possible sanctions are filed with the court, Judge Leblanc will make a decision on what or if any punishment will be implemented.

"He was given quite a break with his home incarceration," Kurt Wall with the Attorney General's Office said. "He took full advantage of that unfortunately, so we are expecting some punishment to result for taking advantage of that situation."

When we asked White's attorney about why his client went to a restaurant while on house arrest, Steven Moore responded, "Once again, I'm probably not going to discuss that until our next court hearing just because it's been alleged he did that and we will have to go forward from that."

A decision could come next month.
