Join us for 7 News at Noon!

Good morning everyone! Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon

An 80-year-old Westlake man is sentenced to 120 years in prison!  Charles Bergeron  originally faced 70 sex crime charges, but pleaded guilty to just over 2 dozen counts.  KPLC'S Theresa Schmidt was in court for the sentencing and will provide our update at noon. 

We'll also have an update on those tense moments at Lake Charles Regional Airport last night. A jet bound from Houston to New York made an emergency landing there and we've learned that several people on board were injured. We'll have more on exactly what happened and have the latest on those who were hurt. In the meantime, you can see our story from overnight by KPLC's Lee Peck HERE

Also today, if you cuss like a sailor, you'll have "heck" to pay in one town. We'll tell you what sparked a new ordinance that carries a hefty fee.

Plus, is organized crime on the rise? You may be surprised at the tactics some thieves are using to put your money into their pockets. 

Ben has been a busy little bee again. He's been out talking about hurricane season to some kids at a local daycare and he's also been online with his weekly weather chat.  Not to worry though, he's also found the time to fine-tune his forecast.     He tells me most of us had a dry start to begin the day, but conditions are setting up for an afternoon  much like yesterday.  How likely is it that you'll get a storm or two?  All will be revealed in Ben's live and very local forecast at noon.  He'll also share a photo of his visit to Precious Treasures Childcare Center. 

Remember we're streaming live online at kplctv.com if you can't catch us on the air. While you're online you may be interested in a story about a new law signed by Governor Jindal.  It's a ban on roadside pet sales.  How will it affect you?   Find out HERE

Have a great day everyone!
