Representatives for a Sons of Confederate Veterans camp have indicated that the organization will ask the St. Landry Parish District Attorney’s Office to consider adding a hate crime charge in connection with the damage to a Confederate monument.
Additionally organization members say they plan to request District Attorney Chad Pitre consider filing additional felony charges against the Opelousas man now charged with one count of simple criminal damage to property for allegedly attempting to topple the monument and then later allegedly smearing black paint over the statue that has been located on the Courthouse Square for over 100 years.
