The perpetrator: Walter Black, 41, of Belle Chasse, who had already racked up convictions for robbery and extorting some $10,000 from a priest he was having sex with and blackmailing in 2001.
Black's latest escapade has him headed back to prison. On Friday, an Orleans Parish judge sentenced him to five years for using his gold boot to beat a man outside the Double Play bar, 439 Dauphine St., at 3:37 a.m. Oct. 25, 2008....."
"Black's sister also testified that her brother has a learning disability, and that his "lifestyle" began only after he started to come into New Orleans, where he was "influenced" by others. "
