On Monday, May 24, David Billy Parker, 33, Lake Charles, pleaded guilty to one count of Armed Robbery and one count of False Imprisonment with a Dangerous Weapon. Parker was sentenced to 45 years at hard labor without benefit of probation, parole, or suspension of sentence for the Armed Robbery and was sentenced to 10 years at hard labor for the False Imprisonment with a Dangerous Weapon, with the sentences to run concurrently.
In 2014, Parker robbed an employee at a business in North Lake Charles. During the robbery, he made the employee lay on the floor and stated if she moved or called the police then he would kill her with the gun he was carrying. Parker fled the scene once he obtained the amount of cash he was demanding.
First Assistant District Attorney Jacob Johnson prosecuted the case for the Calcasieu Parish District Attorney’s Office.
