On June 17, 2015, a jury convicted William Chester Farry, 30, of one count of Armed Robbery.
Farry was found guilty of entering a Sulphur home on May 30, 2009 and demanding money from a male and female victim inside. He was armed with a baseball bat and tied both victims up before putting them in a closet. A gun and a pouch of foreign currency were taken during the robbery.
Farry has two prior felony convictions. The Calcasieu Parish District Attorney’s Office plans to file a Habitual Offender bill, meaning the defendant could face life in prison.
Detective Brent Young investigated the case for the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office.
Assistant District Attorney Ross Murray prosecuted the case for the Calcasieu Parish District Attorney’s Office with the help of Assistant District Attorney James Sudduth.
