Sulphur man sentenced to 8 years for vehicular homicide

A Sulphur man has been sentenced to eight years for vehicular homicide in 2010.

On April 10, 2010 around 2 a.m. sheriff's officials investigated a report of a hit and run accident that happened in front of a convenience store in the 2700 block of South Beglis Parkway.

Upon arrival deputies located Russell J. Broussard, 50, lying in the ditch. Officials pronounced Broussard dead on the scene after checking his vital signs.

Deputies learned that a truck was speeding out of the store parking lot, hit the curb and then struck Broussard as he walked along the sidewalk of Patton Street.

The investigation lead deputies to the home of Anthony Joseph Gary, 25 of Sulphur, where he was arrested.

Judge G. Michael Canaday sentenced Anthony Gary to eight years in the Louisiana Department of Corrections. Gary will serve three years without the benefit of probation, parole, or suspension of sentence.

Upon completion, Gary will be on supervised probation for five years with special conditions.
