22-yr-old from Livingston sentenced 50 yrs for distributing Fentanyl

Colton Boudreaux, 22, of Holden was sentenced to 50 years at hard labor in the Louisiana
Department of Corrections for two counts of distribution of fentanyl and one count of entering
contraband into a penal institution.

Livingston Parish District Attorney Scott Perrilloux said the plea and sentence is the result of a July 13th, 2022 investigation by the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office which resulted in the seizure of over $37,000 in cash and over 2200 fentanyl tablets that appeared to be disguised by their markings as Oxycodone.


LPSO received multiple tips indicating that Boudreaux had allegedly been distributing large amounts of pressed fentanyl pills, in and around Livingston Parish. Detectives began surveilling Boudreaux and were able to record hand-to-hand transactions, which led to them securing a search warrant for the residence where the seizures were made. While being booked, it was determined that Boudreaux also had hidden additional fentanyl on his person.

“This case is the result of excellent work by the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office. Fentanyl is fast
becoming one of the leading killers in our country and those who are caught dealing this drug are going
to be prosecuted in a most severe manner by this office. Every day, we hear of another tragedy involving
a family who is dealing with the loss of a loved one who has overdosed from fentanyl. We are going to
do everything within our authority to punish those who sell this substance and have no regard for
human life,” Perrilloux stated.

Judge Jeff Johnson handed down the sentence which consisted of 40 years concurrent on the two
distribution of fentanyl counts and an additional 10 years on the contraband charge to run
