Eric Bourg, 28, and Megan Bourg, 25, each pleaded guilty today (Sept. 5) to violating one count of aggravated crime against nature, perpetrated upon a victim under the age of 13, before Judge Timothy S. Marcel.
The pleas bring to conclusion cases that began after their arrests on Oct. 4, 2017.
In exchange for his guilty plea, Eric Bourg was sentenced to 60 years with the Louisiana Department of Corrections. That sentence was made immediately executory and was ordered to be served without benefit of parole, probation or suspension of sentence. In exchange for her guilty plea, Megan Bourg was sentenced to 40 years with the Louisiana Department of Corrections. Her sentence, also, was made immediately executory and was ordered to be served without benefit of parole, probation or suspension of sentence.
The guilty pleas to these charges also carry a lifetime sex offender registration requirement.
“The focus of my office, particularly lead prosecutor John M. Chaisson, has been on achieving a just resolution of this matter in light of the serious crimes perpetrated by these defendants, as well as protecting the well-being of the young victim,” said District Attorney Joel T. Chaisson II. “These pleas ensure that both defendants will spend a significant amount of time in jail where they will be unable to victimize another child and eliminate any possibility of the victim having to testify .”
