Lafourche man, Assumption man sentenced in separate cases

A state district judge in Assumption Parish this week sentenced two men convicted on separate drug and weapons counts, prosecutors said Thursday.

Judge Ralph Tureau of the 23rd Judicial District Court sentenced Troy Frazier, 31, of Raceland, to 12 years in state prison Wednesday at the Assumption Parish Courthouse in Napoleonville, prosecutors said in a statement Thursday from District Attorney Ricky Babin’s office.

Frazier had pleaded guilty April 25 to being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, prosecutors said.

Also on Wednesday, Tureau sentenced Titus Richard, 26, of Paincourtville, to 20 years in state prison in a separate case.

Richard had pleaded guilty April 25 to a distribution of cocaine count.

Richard sold drugs to an undercover officer during a Sheriff’s Office drug sting named “Get a Real Job,” prosecutors said.

The first two years of Frazier’s sentence must be served without the benefit of probation, parole or suspension of sentence, prosecutors said.

The 23rd District encompasses Assumption, Ascension and St. James parishes.
