Press Release from the U.S. Attorney's Office:
NEW ORLEANS – U.S. Attorney Peter G. Strasser announced that ANGEL PERILLOUX, age 39, of Ponchatoula, was sentenced on November 14, 2019 for obstruction of justice.
According to the court documents, PERILLOUX obstructed a federal grand jury investigation by soliciting individuals to remove evidence from an impounded vehicle. PERILLOUX discussed several unsuccessful attempts to break into the vehicle on recorded jail calls. Ultimately, at PERILLOUX’s direction, an employee of Cooper’s Salvage Yard and Wrecker Service removed a firearm and drug money from a vehicle and provided them to PERILLOUX.
U.S. District Judge Carl J. Barbier sentenced PERILLOUX to (3) years probation, to include (6) months of home detention. A $100 special assessment was also imposed.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office investigated this matter. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Maria M. Carboni.
