Who Got Busted?

A local judge’s brother faced up to 100 years in prison was sentenced to 2 years on child porn charges.

On November 15th, 2012 we were the first to report that a 16th Judicial Judge’s brother, Phillip D. deMahy Sr. 51 of 215 Ashston St. New Iberia had been arrested for child pornography back on November 5th.

On December 3rd, after waiting and waiting for local media to cover this incident, we once again shed light on the story by writing yet another article entitled, “judge’s brother jailed on child porn charges, media mum.

Shortly after the story, KATC wrote two sentences about this incident and the local tabloid didn’t do much better.

In late January of this year, deMahy pled guilty to 10 counts of possession of pornography involving juvenile, although he was initially only charged with one count of child pornography despite investigators locating 30 images depicting prepubescent children engaged in sexual acts on his computer.

At one time, deMahy ran a successful advertising firm in New Iberia and had previously served as Treasurer for his brother “Judge Paul J. deMahy Campaign Fund” according to Louisiana Secretary of State Records.

According to reports, 16th Judicial District Judge Charles Porter was the judge who sentenced his colleague’s brother to a tw0 year prison sentence.

Most convicted sex offenders are required to register once released. It’s unclear if deMahy will have to though.
