Eleven months after he was convicted of molesting an underage relative, a Shreveport man learned his fate as a convicted sex offender.
Allen Richard Roth Jr., 54, had faced a possible 99-year sentence when he was tried in July 2016 following his arrest two years earlier for molesting a female relative numerous times between 2003 and 2010. The victim was not able to disclose the abuse until March 2014, when she was 17, at which time family members notified authorities.
Thursday, June 29, 2017, he was sentenced to 30 years in prison at hard labor, at least 25 years of which must be served without benefit of probation, parole or suspension of sentence. He also must register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
Roth was represented before Judge John Mosley by Elton Richey, who replaced Roth’s trial counsel, Bobby Sutton Jr. Assistant District Attorney Britney A. Green stood for the state.
