For forty-four years Thomas Guilbeau has practiced criminal law in Lafayette, covering a variety of cases including homicides and death penalty cases.
"Their level of burden in this is not beyond reasonable doubt, it is basically probable cause," said Guilbeau. Guilbeau believes Lavergne's lawyers will say most of the evidence is circumstantial and rule out every possible hypothesis of what happened the day Mickey disappeared. As far as a change of venue, Guilbeau says it really is up in the air because this is such a high profile case and he does believe the defense will use media clips such as an interview Chief Craft gave to the Advertiser a few days ago. "Making comments like he did about the defendant should say where the body is and how it's hurting the family, I think that's fuel to the fire for a change of venue. I think Chief Craft needs to keep his mouth shut and not talk about the case anymore because he's not helping them keep it here," said Guilbeau. However, with all the publicity surrounding the Shunick case, Lafayette attorney Tommy Guilbeau thinks a change in venue is likely. "High profile cases like this are rarely tried in the venue that they occur, and I wouldn't be greatly surprised if we did have a change of venue down the line," said Guilbeau.
