Colton Boudreaux pleaded guilty to manslaughter and drug charges stemming from a shootout in Holden in January 2021, according to Attorney General Jeff Landry.
Landry issued a statement after Colton Boudreaux’s plea
“My office and I are committed to making Louisiana a safer place and getting justice for crime victims. This morning, in a Livingston Parish courtroom, Colton Boudreaux admitted his guilt to manslaughter and possession with intent to distribute. I commend my Assistant Attorneys General Jeff Traylor and Winston White for their exceptional prosecutorial work to obtain this guilty plea, and I pray this conviction will bring some comfort to the victim’s family. As Attorney General, I will continue to fight for justice.”
Javin Augillard, 19, of Gonzales was killed in the 2021 shooting. Officials said a group of people drove from Ascension Parish to a house in Livingston Parish for a drug deal, but gunfire broke out after a disagreement. Aguillard was shot, along with a woman inside the home.
Boudreaux and five others faced charges for the incident.
Boudreaux, who faces 40 years in prison, is expected to be sentenced on July 28.
