Diigo Post Excerpt:
The petitioner, Polizzi, is a convicted prisoner incarcerated in the Avoyelles Correctional Center in Cottonport, Louisiana. On August 19, 2003, Polizzi was charged by Bill of Information in Jefferson Parish with one count of sexual intercourse using force of arms with a known juvenile without her consent and by use of force or threats of physical violence, and one count of oral sexual battery upon the known juvenile by touching her genitals with his mouth while the juvenile was less that 15 years old and at least three years younger than the defendant. Polizzi entered a plea of not guilty to the charges on August 20, 2003. The record reflects that, in June of 2003, the victim, A.R., was 14 years old and lived at 769 Avenue C in Westwego, Louisiana. On June 18, 2003, she spent the night at the house next door, 765 Avenue C, where Michelle Gisclair, Timmy Adams, and Melissa and David Trepagnier lived. Chris Polizzi, who was 59 years old at the time of trial, also had been staying in that house. The house was a shotgun-style house, with a living room, followed by a bedroom, followed by either a bathroom or another bedroom, with the kitchen in the very back. There was a doorway, with no door, separating the front bedroom from the living room.
