ST. JOHN PARISH, La. (WVUE) - A judge has sentenced former St. John Parish judge Jeff Perilloux to 14 years in prison Monday.

Perilloux was convicted of three counts of indecent behavior with juveniles and one misdemeanor count of sexual battery in September.

According to prosecutors, Perilloux groomed the friends of his daughters as young as 14-years-old and inappropriately touched them.

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry released statement about today’s sentencing saying,

“The road was not easy to travel, but today we finally arrived to justice for the young victims. I am proud of the hard work by AAG Matt Derbes, AAG Brooke Harris, and AAG Barry Milligan to ensure Mr. Perilloux was brought to justice. Sex offenses against children are the most serious of crimes which cause permanent psychological harm. This trauma has been exacerbated by Mr. Perilloux’s continued refusal to admit and/or take responsibility for what he did to these young women, who were children when these crimes were committed. But I hope the sentence issued today will bring some comfort to the survivors and their families.”
