Steven Alan Roy recently learned the hard way how stealing crawfish is against the law.
Roy was recently sentenced to three years in jail for stealing crawfish in access of $500 which is a felony. However, all of his three years were suspended because of a plea agreement he reached with the state.
Roy was placed on supervised probation and he must pay a restitution of $780 to Richard Luquette, who lives on La. 693. Roy is expected to pay Richard $32.50 a month for 24 months.
Roy could have been sentenced to five years in prison for stealing $500 worth of crawfish.
