Judge to rule on venue change in voyeurism case

LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) - Prosecutors and defense attorneys in the case of former Lake Charles gynecologist Peter LaFuria have agreed to allow 25 items to be entered into evidence, concluding a pretrial proceeding to suppress evidence.

State District Judge David Ritchie said Monday both sides must submit legal briefs by Dec. 13 arguing their stance on the motion to suppress evidence and a motion to change venue. Ritchie said he will issue a ruling on both motions Dec. 18.

LaFuria is charged with 186 counts of video voyeurism, 78 counts of sexual battery and five counts of molestation of a juvenile. The case dates from April 2007.
