Exactly.


And Fontenot is underage.
But the serving to someone under 21 would be the least of their worries if they got pulled into the mix.

I figured it was possible, so not sure how much it will weigh in here, but regardless of his actual BAC, I'm certain those around the defendant prior to the shooting will be deposed concerning his behavior.

His actual BAC won't factor in as much as it would in a vehicular homicide case, IMO, but alcohol related facts could influence a jury on his charges.

I think it will only matter in the civil suit. I still believe that the charges will be reduced and they will not use his state of mind as evidence in the criminal case. They will not be able to show enough evidence that will be relevant. Unless they have video and some convincing physical evidence.

Or they'll present the evidence and the defense will shoot it down immediately.

I'm out of state and haven't followed and can't make sense of what's happened here with all this conflicting information. Can somebody give me a brief synopsis containing the facts of this case?

I think right now, there are few facts known publicly and almost all you're hearing is speculation.

I have seen some comments that are pretty close to actual events, IMO

Good kids doing mischievous stuff.
They end up "about" the wrong property.
Resident is there and alerted by noise.
Bad situation: multiple thefts before, weapon on property because of fear, family home. including little sister, possibly OTHERS, etc
Confrontation, shots, dead kid.

Kind of a perfect storm of bad events. After the shots, it seems everyone did as expected ,void the notification of the law by either party. Details should remain between the ones who need them at this point......lawyers, police, prosecutors.

Bad tragedy for sure!

None of them, that would make my talking about it a bad thing and illegal in some instances.

Everything I'm hearing is stacked against Fontenot. I'd think they really are going to need to appeal to the victims family for the reduced charges.

I ate dinner with a couple of Fontenot's family and friends tonight that went to court today and they seem awfully optimistic. Tomorrow is going to be interesting.

Pshhhhh not quite. I'm getting biased information from family members and legal advice from friends who are attorneys in town. I was just trying to pump some life into this thread going into tomorrow.

Update

From KATC

quote:

Bond was set today for Seth Fontenot--the Lafayette man accused of shooting and killing 15-year-old Austin Rivault and shooting and injuring two other 15-year-old boys. Until today bond had not been set for the first degree murder charge....only for the two attempted first degree murder charges. A judge set total bail at $700,000 - $500,000 for 1st degree murder and $100,000 each for the two attempted 1st degree murder charges. The original bond for the attempted murder charges was a million dollars. In court were friends and families of 15-year-old Austin Rivault and his two friends who were shot and injured. Also, in court was Fontenot's family and friends who wore ribbons and pictures of him to show support. "That's my buddy, that's my partner, I want to come and show his respect, cause i know he'd do the same for me," Austin Vidrine, Seth Fontenot's friend said. "I've known him for years and he's a good dude, I know he didn't do this on purpose," Dylan Scott, another friend of Seth Fontenot's said. His attorney Tommy Guilbeau said Fontenot would have to post an $84,000 bond to get out of jail. He doesn't expect that to happen today. "My client don't have the money to post that at this time. We're going to regroup and see what we could do. We're going to appeal that to the third circuit, but for now Seth will be in jail," Tommy Guilbeau said. Lafayette District Attorney Mike Harson said he agreed with the amount of the bond. "I think it was a fair bond, I think it was kind of the area i was looking at in the first place. I think some people will think it's too high, and others too low," Mike Harson said. Fontenot's arraignment is set for march 4th.
