Patricia Currie, a 78-year-old woman from Mandeville, Louisiana, was found guilty on August 14, 2019 of attempted second-degree murder for attempting to kill her former bankruptcy attorney. On October 27, 2016, Attorney Keith Couture was alone at his law firm when he heard the door open. At the front of his office, Currie was sitting in a chair with latex gloves on, plastic grocery bags on her feet, and a white towel in her lap covering a gun. After Currie raised the gun at Couture, he was able to wrestle it away from her. Couture testified that when asked why she was there, Curie said she was there to kill him. Testifying in her own defense, Currie said she intended to only scare her former attorney. Currie appears for sentencing on September 30, 2019 where she faces 10 to 50 years in prison.
