LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

A former Lake Charles counselor and therapist has been indicted on a charge of sexual battery.

Christopher Kyle Hay was indicted Thursday by a Calcasieu Parish Grand Jury. According to the indictment, the alleged incidents happened between June 15 and July 19, 2013.

The Louisiana Licensed Professional Counselors Board of Examiners revoked Hay's licenses in September, after he admitted to improper conduct with a client. Hay admitted he inappropriately touched the client in a sexual manner and made inappropriate sexual comments.

No word was given on whether the charge of sexual battery is related to the incidents which led to Hay losing his licenses.

Hay was practicing in Lake Charles as a marriage and family therapist and counselor.

 

Three indicted on robbery charges

Three Lake Charles men were indicted Thursday in connection with a robbery last month in Lake Charles.

Ernest James Hudson, 19; D'Andre Jerome Lambert, 20; and Mark Anthony Washington, 21; were indicted on charges of armed robbery, illegal use of weapons, illegal carrying of weapons and drug possession with intent to distribute.

Authorities said the men were arrested in late February after attempting to rob a homeowner in the 1700 block of Woodring Street. The suspects were armed, and after a struggle between the homeowner and one of the suspects took place, the suspects fled the scene while firing shots.

No injuries were reported from the incident.

 

Other indictment

• Jordan Jamar Brown, 24: possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of stolen firearms, marijuana possession with intent to distribute.

    Debate on move to end non-unanimous juries in Louisiana

    The future of how felony cases are handled could be in the hands of voters soon. The state Senate recently passed a bill that would end non-unanimous jury verdicts in felony cases. Currently, only Louisiana and Oregon allow people charged with felonies to be convicted when only 10 out of 12 jurors agree. However, the state of Oregon does require an unanimous vote from the jury in murder trials. Senate Bill 243 is sponsored by Sen. J.P. Morrell, D-New Orleans. Prosecutors, like Ca...
