22-year-old Dwight Perrilloux

The 23rd Judicial District Court sentenced 22-year-old Dwight Perrilloux of 37214 St. Marie Ave, Prairieville, La. to 15 years in the Louisiana Department of Corrections with credit for time served for Possession of a Schedule II Controlled Dangerous Substance and Possession with Intent to Distribute a Schedule I Controlled Dangerous Substance.

Perrilloux was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Charles “Chuck” Long, and presiding over this matter was the Honorable Judge Tess Stromberg.This guilty plea was the result of a plea agreement with prosecutors following an April 28, 2017 disturbance at an area Wal-Mart.

According to the release: "Upon arrival, [Gonzales] officers met with a female subject who was identified as Perrilloux’s significant other. The female advised that she was approached by Perrilloux while working, and Perrilloux began to cause a disturbance. Perrilloux fled the area prior to the arrival of officers. A short while later, officers located Perrilloux on Weber City Rd. riding a bicycle.

"Upon making contact with Perrilloux, officers conducted a pat-down search of Perrilloux’s outer clothing. During the pat-down, officers located a clear plastic baggie containing Crystal Meth in Perrilloux’s pant pocket, a pill bottle containing tin foil packs of heroin individually packaged for sale, two syringes, and over $1,200 in U.S. Currency. Perrilloux was subsequently arrested and transported to the Ascension Parish Jail where he was booked accordingly."

Perrilloux was in the spotlight back in 2014 for a head-on collision that killed 15-year-old Claire Carline. Moreover, he was arrested in 2013 for selling marijuana at Dutchtown High School, according to a WBRZ news story. His Ascension Parish arrest record also indicates that he was arrested again in 2015 for misdemeanor simple battery, a misdemeanor domestic abuse battery, and a felony unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling.
