Tori Broussard Bonding Out

We are pleased that Tori Broussard was able to bond out of the Calcasieu Parish Correctional Center on March 3, 2021. She is being unjustly prosecuted for two murders that she did not commit and did not have any role in their commission. We commend the Honorable Judge Derrick Kee for having the courage to reduce her bond on yesterday from $300,000.00 to $75,000.00. This was done at the conclusion of a lengthy hearing in which the lead detective from the Sheriff… Read More

Judge Recused from Case - Dennis Bartie

Dennis Bartie is charged with Second Degree Murder in the death of Rose Born in Lake Charles, Louisiana in 1998.

The Honorable Judge Clayton Davis ruled in favor of Mr. Bartie and ordered that Judge Canaday should be recused. He ordered that the Clerk of Court randomly re-allot our c… Read More
