LIVINGSTON, La. (BRPROUD) – Former Livingston Parish Sheriff Deputy Dennis Perkins’s trial was delayed again Wednesday.
The judge set the new trial date for January 9, 2023.
The delay comes after the defense claimed the AG’s office accidentally sent pornographic material involving a child within the evidence that was intentionally shared. Because the content is considered contraband, the defense was forced to wipe their computer clean, losing months of pre-trial work.
This case made headlines after graphic details came out alleging Perkins had videotaped himself making semen-laced desserts and later serving them to school children with the help of his estranged wife Cynthia Perkins. Other charges include rape, child pornography, and sexual battery against a child under 13.
In December, Curtin was found guilty of aggravated rape and video voyeurism of an unconscious woman and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. A crime she is accused of committing with Dennis Perkins.
The AG’s office denied sending any contraband material and said they are ready for trial. This is not the first time the defense has argued to delay the trial.
BRPROUD reached out to Perkins’s attorney and is waiting on a response.
