On May 25, Michael LeBlanc was sentenced by Judge Kliebert to 18 years with the Louisiana Department of Corrections at hard labor with credit for time served.

The sentencing stems from a Dec. 2 ruling that found LeBlanc, of Donaldsonville, guilty by an Ascension Parish jury on the charge of Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon.

LeBlanc was previously convicted of Aggravated Battery (Felony) in 2003 in Orleans Parish. 

Prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Shawn Bush, LeBlanc is also one of two defendants awaiting trial in connection with the 2014 shooting death of Adoriji Wilson in Donaldsonville.
