A Lafayette man will serve two 20-year sentences for molestation of two juveniles, according to the 15th Judicial Dictrict Court’s district attorney’s office.
Victor Benoit, 62, was convicted Thursday of two counts of molestation of a juvenile in the 15th JDC in Lafayette. He was charged in June 2016 with committing lewd and lascivious acts of a sexual nature over a period of 7 years with two minors.
Benoit received the maximum sentence under the law — 20 years at hard labor on each molestation count.
The case was prosecuted by First Assistant District Attorney Daniel Landry and was investigated by the Lafayette City Police. The lead investigator was Detective Jason Migues. Judge Marilyn Castle presided over the case and sentencing.
