BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - A woman convicted of stealing a truck parked outside a Baton Rouge doughnut shop with a dog inside back in July of 2019 has been sentenced to 12 years in prison, East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Hillar Moore tells WAFB’s Scottie Hunter.

The dog, named Roleaux, was found dead after being left in the truck after it was abandoned by Leslie Aguillard, authorities say.

Moore says Aguillard was convicted and sentenced Thursday, July 23 to 12 years for carjacking, 10 years for aggravated cruelty to an animal, and 12 years for second-degree battery.

However, Moore says she will serve the sentences concurrently, meaning she will spend 12 years total in prison.

Roleaux’s owner, David Mohr, posted to social media Thursday saying “justice has been served [for Roleaux].”

Mohr was hospitalized due to injuries he suffered while trying to stop Aguillard from stealing his truck, deputies with the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office say.
