St. Rose man sentenced in 2014 negligent homicide

A St. Rose man has been sentenced for the negligent homicide of a man who died when the two were involved in a fatal single-vehicle crash in November.

Christopher Lymous, 19, received a deferred two-year prison sentence and two years supervised probation. If Lymous violates probation, he will serve the jail time.

29th Judicial District Court Judge M. Lauren Lemmon sentenced Lymous on April 20. St. Charles Parish Assistant District Attorney Rochelle Champagne Fahrig recommended the sentence, according to  court records.

Lymous was ordered to pay a $1,000 fine and a monthly supervision fee of $60 during his probation, as well as was sentenced to seven days in parish prison, complete with time served, according to court records.

In November, Charles Green Jr., 20, was ejected from a vehicle, who apparently lost control and flipped the Dodge Charger he was driving on Louisiana 626 in St. Rose. Green who landed inside the wood line beyond the ditch that bordered the road was pronounced dead on the scene, according to the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Lymous, who voluntarily submitted to breath and blood tests, was not impaired at the scene,. He later confessed to travelling 90 mph in a 55 mile-an-hour zone, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Following an investigation, Lymous was arrested on Dec. 31 and released on $75,000 bond pending his court dates.
