Jury indicts former Carencro police officer for receiving cash payments from Desperado’s

A federal grand jury indicted a former Carencro police officer for receiving cash payments from Desperado’s Gentlemen’s Cabaret.

Timothy “Timmy” Prejean (42), in addition to his other law enforcement duties as a Carencro police officer, was designated to manage the issuance of exotic dancer permits for the Carencro police department and enforced related ordinances. According to the indictment, from January 1, 2007, until December 5, 2012, Prejean received regular cash payments and extra money for a vacation and personal expenses from desperado’s owners James and Jennifer Panos.

Desperado’s operated as an illegal enterprise for many years. In May 2013, owners James and Jennifer Panos and eight other defendants were charged in a 10-count indictment, alleging racketeering conspiracy, drug conspiracy, and firearms charges for activity that took place inside the club from 2006 until December 5, 2012.
