Bishop Dubroc Sentenced to 39 Years in Prison

           On August 24, 2015 Judge Ron Ware sentenced Bishop Slade Dubroc, 20, to 39 years with the Louisiana Department of Corrections.

            Judge Ware convicted Dubroc on June 3, 2015 of two counts of Attempted Second Degree Murder, Possession of a Weapon by a Convicted Felon and Distribution of CDS I. He was sentenced to 35 years in prison on each count of Attempted Second Degree Murder, 10 years in prison for Possession of a Weapon by Convicted Felon and 15 years in prison on Distribution of CDS I. All of that time is to run concurrently. Dubroc was on probation for Simple Robbery at the time of the incident, and he will serve an additional four years for his Probation Violation. That time will run consecutively to the 35 years. All time will be served without the benefit of probation, parole or suspension of sentence.

            The convictions stem from an incident that took place on November 3, 2013 at the St. Charles Place Apartments in Lake Charles. Dubroc was driven to the scene by a female friend to sell marijuana to an acquaintance. A confrontation occurred between Dubroc and another male at the scene after the drugs were sold. Dubroc began shooting a .40 caliber weapon out of the passenger side window as the car fled the scene.

            Two people suffered gunshot wounds during the incident, including the male who purchased marijuana from Dubroc. A 26-year-old pregnant woman was also shot while sitting in a car nearby. She suffered extensive injuries from a gunshot wound to the head.

            Sergeant Franklin Fondel served as the lead detective on the case for the Lake Charles Police Department.

            Assistant District Attorney Bobby Holmes prosecuted the case for the Calcasieu Parish District Attorney’s Office with the help of Assistant District Attorney Lawrence Babineaux.
