Shane Hebert – Victim Without Justice
I gave you life
I gave you love
I gave you freedom
I gave you guidence
I gave you room to grow
I gave you love and support
I gave you morals and values
I gave you all I had to give son
But I could not give you justice.
My son, Shane Hebert was brutely murdered on Oct. 27, 1997 at the age of 19. Why was he murdered? Because he was at the wrong place at the wrong time.
I waited two years, five months and nine days to find out that it did not matter. Shane’s killer was found not guilty. And within hours of the verdict, he confessed.
Adam Carrier killed my son and now walks free.
We would like to thank Charlotte Herbert, who prosectuted this case. We know you did everything in your power to see that Shane receieved justice.
To Wayne Stewart who represented Adam Carrier. You yourself said and I quote: “This was a horrific killing. I told the jury that in my opinion, whoever did it was a cold-blooded, vicious killer.” You Mr. Stewart helped put this cold blooded, vicious killer on the streets with your children and grandchildren and all the children of Livingston Parish. Do you fear who his next victim will be?
And one more thing Mr. Stewart , my son has a name, he is not “that kid.” His name is SHANE.
And to the members of the jury who voted not guilty, you also put this killer back on the street with our children. I have two surviving children and Shane also has two children, I don’t know about you, but this scares the HE** out of me.
The Family of Shane Hebert
The Victim Without Justice
THE LADY ON THE JUSTICE SCALES IS BLINDFOLDED SO SHE WON’T HAVE TO SEE THE INJUSTICE DONE IN OUR COURTROOMS
A young man
A family thrown beneath
the wheels of “Justice”
wheels that are made
to grind the soul and
mutilate the heart.
Wheels that grind so slowly
To make the pain and torture
All the rights
All the priviledges
Let’s get this over
So we can go home.
A young man
In memory of Shane and the great injustice done to him.
Final Judgment is Death
In this world full of violence and crime,
a heart breaks too many times.
The saddest part of the whole ordeal
is watching that mom’s pain revealed.
When the judicial system then fails them,
the family is forever condemned.
They relive the pain of their loss each day.
They cry out for the agony to go away.
Their suffering each and every moment of heartaches
makes each step in life too hard to take.
Does the system care what it has come to be?
How could they set this killer free?
For I am the mother of that young man.
And I will never be able to understand
how could you take his life at such early age.
Why did you leave me feeling so outraged?
I know that someday you’ll pay
for the crime you committed that day.
When the life of her son meant nothing more
than an object on the other side of the door.
You were released by the judicial system, true.
But your sin will forever haunt you.
And, one day when your draw your final breath,
you’ll hear the JUDGE sentence you to DEATH.
Dedicated to Judi Walker
In Loving Memory of Shane
I am outraged that the Louisiana Judical System was NOT there for Shane. It is pitiful that the criminals have more rights than the the victims. Where did we go wrong? Shane Hebert had a life. And, this trash took it. Now, when, where and WHO explains this contastrophy to Shane’s twins? How can we express to them that law & order is the way? What a terrible thing to happen in our state. Lord be with us all when the criminal has more rights than we do.
These are the newspaper articles about the murder trial of Shane Hebert.
Many people have asked me what happened to the other two boys involved. When it was time for their sentencing, I went to the hearing and spoke on their behalf. I asked that the judge release them for time served. She granted my request. They are now free and resuming their lives, but not the lives they had before, Shane’s death has changed them forever. I stay in contact with both of them and both are doing very well and are productive young men. I feel they will do great things with the rest of their lives.
Many people will not understand what I did, I have had people come up to me and tell me what I did was wrong. I respect their opinions, but I had to do what my heart told me was right.
Injustice in our courts happens more than people realize.
Here are more victims without justice.

There is no music on this page, it is silent in respect for all the victims without justice. Silent just as they and their rights are.
