On September 22nd, Marcel N. Dugar, 40, was found guilty on one (1) count unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling; and one (1) count aggravated kidnapping.
In 2020, Dugar, without authorization, entered the victim’s home through a kitchen window.

Acadian Ambulance arrived on scene to examine the 8-month-old victim for injuries and upon finding no injury, the victim was reunited with the mother and returned home.
Sentencing for Dugar will be held December 1, 2021 before Judge Clayton Davis.
