St. Charles Parish Jury Convicts Larry Thompson
BATON ROUGE, LA – Attorney General Jeff Landry issued the following statement after his office obtained a unanimous jury conviction of Larry Thompson on charges of second degree murder and obstruction of justice in the 2014 Christmas night killing of David Scott in Hahnville:

“Today’s verdict is the culmination of years of great investigative work by Sheriff Greg Champagne’s Office and the prosecutorial efforts by my Assistant Attorneys General Matthew Derbes and Molly Lancaster. Together, we have brought Mr. Thompson to justice and hopefully delivered some closure to the Scott family.”


Thompson, facing life in prison, is expected to be sentenced on September 20th.

Coming soon, the attorney's general office seeks to provide a mechanism by which to take online payments for collections.
