AG introduces new evidence against ex-deputy in child sex case

Local News


Tuesday the Louisiana Attorney General’s Office introduced more evidence in the case against Ex Livingston Parish Sheriff’s deputy Dennis Perkins and his wife, Cynthia Perkins, who stand accused of sexual acts with minors.

Between both Dennis and Cynthia they face 150 counts of sexual offenses against victims, two of which are said to be juveniles.

The new evidence was submitted by Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry to the 21st Judicial District Court in an apparent attempt to broaden or strengthen the State’s case against both Perkins.

Spanning 25-pages the court document cites witness testimony describing disturbing encounters both Dennis and Cynthia Perkins allegedly had with adult victims and juveniles.

Resulting from their arrests in late 2019, Dennis Perkins faces charges of Rape of a Juvenile, Sexual Battery, Video Voyerism, Sexual Abuse of an Animal, Mixing of Harmful Substances, Obscenity, and Production of Child Pornography.

Resulting from her arrest around the same time frame Cynthia Perkins faces charges of Rape, Sexual Battery of a Child, Video Voyerism, and Production of Child Pornography.

Attorney General Landry tells the court in this most recent memorandum this evidence shows the defendants’ lustful disposition towards children and he says it shows a motive and intent to commit the crimes they’ve already been charged with.
