BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — Melanie Curtin was transported back to the Livingston Parish Detention Center, where she was processed as a pre-trial inmate, on Tuesday, Oct. 10, after her hearing in court, according to the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Curtin’s bond was set for $350,000, and she bonded out of the Livingston Parish Detention Center around 4:30 p.m. Oct. 10.

Curtin is connected to a sex crimes case involving Livingston Parish sheriff’s deputy Dennis Perkins and his wife, Cynthia. The Livingston Parish woman was convicted of aggravated rape and video voyeurism in December 2021. Her rape conviction was later overturned and remanded for a new trial.

During today’s court hearing, the judge issued a GPS ankle monitor on Curtin and a protective order was issued in favor of the victim.

Curtin is set to appear in court at 9 a.m. Feb. 26 at the Livingston Parish Courthouse. A motion is set to follow up on the case.
