A Lafayette Parish grand jury on Wednesday handed up a multiple-count indictment against a Kaplan man, accusing him of rape and repeated domestic violence against a woman over a period of more than a year.

Brady Louis Vice, Sr., 29 remains in the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center this evening with no bond set for his release. He has been there, without bond, since December. 

The indictment returned today accuses him of: 

  • First degree rape of a woman in October 2017 
  • Domestic abuse battery of that woman in January 2016
  • Domestic abuse battery of that woman in February 2016
  • Simple Criminal Damage to property, i.e. destruction of her cell phone, in February 2016 
  • Domestic abuse battery of that woman in May 2016
  • Domestic abuse battery of that woman in August 2016 
  • Aggravated battery of that woman in August 2016 
  • Simple criminal damage to property, i.e. destruction of her cell phone, in August 2016
  • Simple criminal damage to property, i.e. destruction of her cell phone, in November 2016
  • Simple criminal damage to property, i.e. destruction of her cell phone, in April 2017 
  • Domestic abuse battery of that woman in front of a child in June 2017

The rape, criminal damage and aggravated battery charges are all felonies. If convicted on the rape charge, he faces a sentence of life in prison without benefit of parole, probation or suspension of sentence. The criminal damage charges carry maximum sentences of two years in prison, and the aggravated battery charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison. 

In Louisiana, domestic abuse battery is a misdemeanor.
