SEAN WILKINSON SENTENCED TO 11 LIFE SENTENCES FOLLOWING HIS NOVEMBER 4TH CONVICTION FOR 11 COUNTS OF FIRST-DEGREE RAPE AND 25 YEARS FOR HIS CONVICTION OF INDECENT BEHAVIOR OF A JUVENILE.
District Attorney Tony Clayton reports that on November 24, Sean Wilkinson was sentenced to 11 life sentences following his November 4th conviction for 11 counts of first-degree rape, and 25 years for his conviction of indecent behavior of a juvenile. Wilkinson, who lived in Plaquemine, was arrested for the crimes on September 19, 2017, and was later indicted by an Iberville Parish Grand Jury.
District Judge Elizabeth Engolio handed down the mandatory sentence after denying the defendant’s motion for new trial and judgement notwithstanding the verdict. This is in accordance with the law relative to first-degree rape and the maximum sentence for indecent behavior of a juvenile.
