Woman blamed for crash that killed LSP trooper in court

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - The Calcasieu District Attorney's office says the driver responsible for the crash that killed a State Police trooper in Moss Bluff pleaded guilty in court on Thursday to running a stop sign.

50-year-old Debra Bourque was sentenced to five days in jail, which were suspended. She was also fined $100 in court costs and ordered to complete a defensive driving course.

The Calcasieu Parish DA's office says there are no criminal charges pending against her at this time.

You'll remember that Trooper Duane Dalton was killed on Highway 171 in Moss Bluff when Bourque allegedly failed to stop at a stop sign causing the wreck that killed Dalton.

Dalton was pronounced dead at the scene becoming the 25th person with State Police killed in the line of duty.
