Melanie Curtin Convicted of Rape

AG Jeff Landry’s Office Successfully Prosecutes Livingston Parish Case

BATON ROUGE, LA – Attorney General Jeff Landry issued the following statement after his office obtained a unanimous jury conviction of Melanie Curtin on charges of aggravated rape and video voyeurism:

"Today, justice was served to Melanie Curtin by a jury of her peers in Livingston Parish. I pray her conviction provides some healing and closure to the crime victim.

This jury’s verdict is the culmination of bravery by the crime victim; an exceptional prosecution by my Assistant Attorneys General Barry Milligan and Erica McLellan; a great investigation by Special Agent Gene Guidry, Forensic Analyst Brian Wilson, and our Cyber Crime Unit; and excellent work by Victims Advocate Kristen Martin, Supervisory Special Agent Andrew Bergeron, and Special Agent Ashley Borel.

My office will continue to do all we can to make Louisiana a safer place to live, work, worship, and raise families."
