Habitual Offender Gets Life Sentence

A 36-year-old Kaplan man accused in the March 2010 killing of a Pizza Hut delivery driver has been sentenced to life in prison as a habitual offender. 

Aaron Orlando Richards will serve life in prison after he was convicted of three separate crimes of violence. 

Prosecutor Alan Haney said Richard's most-recent conviction occurred in October 2011 when a jury of 12 returned a guilty verdict for an April 2009 second-degree robbery outside of Buffalo Wild Wings in Lafayette.

The other two violent crimes occurred in Vermilion Parish. 

He has been jailed without bail since August 2010 when he was arrested in the March 2010 stabbing death of Timothy Falgout.
