Back on May 1 of this year, David Wayne Sims was found guilty of raping one female and of inappropriately touching another. Both of Sims' victims were juveniles. Sims' sentence was handed down yesterday.

Yesterday, Judge G. Michael Canaday sentenced Sims to life in prison plus an additional 50 years, all with the Louisiana Department of Corrections.

Judge Canaday ordered the two sentenced be served consecutive to one another and all time be served without the benefit of probation, parole or suspension of sentence.

Detective Joe Savoie handled the case for the Lake Charles Police Department.

Assistant District Attorney LaKetha Holmes prosecuted the case for the Severe Child Abuse Division of the Calcasieu Parish District Attorney’s Office with the help of Assistant District Attorney Tara Hawkins.
