Gheens man given 15 years for sexual battery

A 70-year-old Gheens man will serve 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to two counts of 2nd-degree sexual battery.



Lafourche Parish District Attorney Kristine Russell announced this morning that Ronnie Dominique, 70, will serve the sentence without the benefit of probation, parole or diminution of sentence.

He will also have to register as a lifetime sex offender.

Domangue was given two 15-year sentences that will be served concurrently.



He was arrested in July 2018 by the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office. He allegedly committed the crimes in July 2018 while victims were swimming in his swimming pool in May 2018. They came forward and shared what happened to authorities, which led to the arrest.

Dominique will immediately begin his sentence with the Louisiana Department of Corrections.
