A Lafayette man admitted he vandalized two local churches, pouring gasoline at the front door of one and threatening to set it ablaze, in an effort to frame his estranged girlfriend. His couillon status is forever secured because he’s black and spray-painted anti-black racial slurs on two predominately black churches. Brian Crimiel is a couillon.

crimielCrimiel, who is 34 and careless, left personal evidence at the scene of one of the crimes — St. James Baptist Church on Plum Street — and used his personal cell phone to call 911 to report the crime, and further admitted to lying to an FBI agent about the whole thing, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Crimiel also admitted to vandalizing Immaculate Heart of Mary Church on 12th Street, although he did not plead guilty to that crime as part of this case.

Crimiel was indicted by a federal grand jury in February of this year in connection with the February 2011 crimes. He faces up to a year in prison and a $5,000 fine as well as a possible $250,000 fine for make the false statement to the G-man. Wait, defacing houses of worship gets you a $5,000 fine and lying to the government is worth a quarter million? Something’s wrong with this picture.

Crimiel previously spent time behind bars in connection with the New Year’s Eve 2006 death of girlfriend’s infant daughter. The coroner determined the 8-month-old died of head trauma. A Lafayette grand jury indicted him on a first-degree murder charge although he pleaded down to negligent homicide. Crimiel was sentenced to five years in prison with all but two years suspended.

Then he got out of jail and vandalized some churches.
