LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - A former Westlake man was convicted and sentenced on home invasion and aggravated battery charges on Thursday, according to a news release from 14th Judicial District Court officials.

Adrian Harvey, formerly of Westlake, was found guilty by Judge Wilford Carter, who handed down a 15-year sentence for Harvey with the Louisiana Department of Corrections.

Assistant District Attorneys Brent Hawkins and Lawrence Babineaux prosecuted the case.
