On October 5, 2022, Jeremy Lucas of 10490 Legion St. Convent, LA., age 33, pled guilty to Sexual Battery. Lucas was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Adam Koenig, and presiding over this matter was the Honorable Judge Cody Martin.

 On November 27, 2020, St. James Parish Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a Convent residence in reference to a disturbance. Upon arrival, deputies made contact with a female subject who advised that she was confronted by Jeremy Lucas. The female advised that Lucas forced her into a vehicle where he began touching her in a sexual fashion. The victim was advised that she was struck in the face, chest, and side of her body by Lucas before being able to get away. Lucas was subsequently arrested and booked into the St. James Parish Jail.

 Upon entering a guilty plea to the above-mentioned charge, sentencing was deferred to a later date pending a Pre-Sentence Investigation. Lucas faces up to 10 years in state prison.
