Gregoire was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Lana Chaney, and presiding over this matter was the Honorable Judge Tess Stromberg.

 

         In April 2022, Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Detectives received information indicating that James Gregoire was providing narcotics to a juvenile and engaging in inappropriate conversations. Detectives interviewed the juvenile in question who advised that Gregoire would trade illegal narcotics for nude photographs and on several occasions made sexual propositions in exchange for narcotics. Detectives were able to develop cause to obtain a search warrant for Gregoire’s residence. Upon executing the search warrant at Gregoire’s residence and conducting forensic cell phone examinations, detectives were able to confirm the events. Gregoire was arrested and booked into the Assumption Parish Jail.

          Upon entering a guilty plea to the above-mentioned charges, Gregoire was sentenced to 20 years with the Louisiana Department of Corrections with credit for time served.
