On August 2, 2012, Judge Wilford Carter found Adrian Harvey, formerly of Westlake, guilty of Home Invasion and Aggravated Battery. Judge Carter sentenced Harvey to fifteen (15) years in the Louisiana Department of Corrections. Assistant District Attorneys Brent Hawkins and Lawrence Babineaux prosecuted the case.
Harvey’s conviction stems from an incident that occurred at a Vinton residence in 2010. Kentrell Williams, Harvey’s co-defendant, entered an Alford plea to Attempted Home Invasion in January 2011. Judge Carter sentenced Williams to eight (8) years in the Louisiana Department of Corrections.
