Lutcher Man Indicted for Attempted 1st Degree Murder of 4-Year-Old

          On last week, an Ascension Parish Grand Jury returned a true bill of indictment on 27-year-old Clydedric Joseph of 2190 Levy Caudet St. Lutcher, LA for the charge of Attempted 1st Degree Murder.  

          On July 25, 2022, Ascension Parish Sheriff’s detectives responded to an area hospital regarding a juvenile cruelty complaint. Upon arrivals, detectives learned that a 4-year-old child was hospitalized with life threatening injuries sustained from apparent child abuse. Detectives obtained evidence indicating that the child’s injuries were the result of Clydedric Joseph severely beating the child. Detectives obtained a warrant of arrest for Joseph who was arrested and booked into the Ascension Parish Jail. 

          Assistant District Attorney Craig Stewart is the lead prosecutor on this case.
