Houma Man Gets Drastically Reduced Sentence In Child Sex Case
A man makes a plea bargain in a child sex case.
He'll only get 4 years. In order to avoid life in prison, Mitchell Courteaux of Houma pleaded guilty to having sexual contact with three young girls related to him. One charge was aggravated rape, which carries a mandatory life sentence. Prosecutors say they made the deal to spare the victims from testifying. The girls are between the ages of four and ten.
