Breaux Bridge Attorneys Along With Two Family Members Arrested And Charged In Connection With Conspiracy And Theft Charges

(St. Martinville, LA.)-On August 8, 2018, Investigators with the St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s Office initiated an investigation following a complaint from a local business that suspected that two of their employees were allegedly embezzling money from their company. Following an extensive investigation into the allegations, Investigators discovered that two of the suspects, Kendra Duplechain Soileau and Jean Soileau, used a variety of schemes which resulted in money being funneled into personal bank accounts. Additionally, two attorneys, Walter Glenn Soileau, and Jacques Pierre Soileau, following settlements from bodily injury claims, would pay for services rendered directly to Jean Soileau instead of paying directly to the company he was employed by. Several other undocumented transactions were conducted by Kendra Duplechain Soileau and Jean Soileau which resulted in the charges listed below.

This afternoon, Investigators with the St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s Office executed the warrants and the following persons were arrested and charged as follows:
