PLAQUEMINE, La. (BRPROUD) — A jury has found a Plaquemine man guilty of 11 counts of first-degree rape and one count of indecent behavior with a juvenile.

A 12-person jury deliberated for three hours on Nov. 4, according to District Attorney Tony Clayton.

“This was a tough case with some very disturbing evidence,” said Ron Gathe, the lead prosecutor in the case. “The jury was very attentive, listened to the facts, and got it right. I am pleased that the victims get to move on and continue the healing process.”

Sean Wilkinson was arrested for his crimes on September 19, 2017, according to the district attorney’s office.

Wilkinson’s sentencing has been scheduled to take place on Dec. 15 at 9 a.m.
