On June 17, 2019, Trey Andrews of Napoleonville, LA., age 27, pled guilty to Simple Burglary. Andrews was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Thomas Daigle, and presiding over this matter was the Honorable Judge Thomas Kliebert. This guilty plea was the result of a plea agreement with prosecutors following a 2018 burglary investigation.
On January 19, 2018, detectives with the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office began conducting an investigation into a residential burglary which occurred in the Napoleonville area. While processing the scene, detectives learned that the suspect made entry into the residence via a utility room window. Detectives swabbed the area of the window in effort to obtain DNA evidence. Detectives learned that miscellaneous items had been taken from the residence including shoes, a quantity of cash, a guitar, liquor, and jewelry. The swabs used at the point of entry into the residence for potential DNA detection were submitted to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for analysis. Detectives later learned that a DNA sample taken from the point of entry matched that of Trey Andrews. Detectives interviewed Andrews who eventually confessed to committing the burglary. Andrews was subsequently booked into the Assumption Parish Detention Center.
Upon entering a guilty plea to the above mentioned charge, pursuant to the plea agreement with prosecutors, Andrews was sentenced to 7 years with the Louisiana Department of Corrections with credit for time served.
