Judge Dupont bids district adieu

Written by William Dupont on .

It seems all but yesterday that it was 1975 I was 23 years old and just graduating from law school, ready to embark a career in law and public service.

40 years later it is now time for me to travel a different path. It is with sadness and joy that I announce my retirement as district judge of the 18th Judicial District Court effective as of Oct. 31. During the last 40 years I have had the pleasure of serving as the attorney for the city of Plaquemine, the town of Fordoche and the Atchafalaya Basin Levee District.
