LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - A 43-year-old Lake Charles man will spend five years in prison for helping his nephew flee the area after a shooting that left an off-duty Calcasieu Parish deputy dead.
Robert W. Pegues pleaded guilty in September to accessory after the fact to manslaughter.
Prosecutors said he drove his nephew, Daniel Pegues, to Lafayette on Jan. 25, 2007, to catch a bus to Kentucky, knowing the man may have committed a felony.
Daniel Pegues was convicted of manslaughter in January 2009 in the slaying of Deputy Alan Inzer and was sentenced to 40 years in prison.
