The Attorney General’s Office said Monday that Brian Malveaux, 30, was convicted by a jury in Opelousas. The AG prosecuted the case in Judge Alonzo Harris’ court.
The AG did not say why his office handled the case instead of the District Attorney’s Office and any court records reflecting that are not open to public view under practices of the district court.
All sexually related-charge case files are closed to the public. Unless or until there is a conviction, nothing is available regarding motions, hearings, trial dates, etc.
A number of such cases, presumably, are still pending in district court, including multiple rape counts against several accused.
Malveaux, eight months after getting out of jail on a five-year burglary conviction sentence, kicked in the back door of his victim’s home.
She heard the noise and got up to see what it was, according to information released at the time.
Malveaux was charged with aggravated burglary, armed robbery, oral sexual battery, aggravated rape and aggravated kidnapping. Circumstances regarding the kidnapping charge were never released and standing of the other charges is not known.
The depraved defendant will get his mandatory life sentence from Harris on Aug. 18.
