Lafourche sheriff's Sgt. David Robichaux said he strongly believes a woman should know how to use a gun to protect herself.
After all, if his wife didn't know how to use a gun, the Sheriff's Office would have one less instructor.
Sgt. Charlene Robichaux learned how to shoot when she was a 14-year-old junior deputy in the Terrebonne Sheriff's Office, she said.
“I was the best shooter there,” she said with a grin.
Although she's a shift supervisor for the Lafourche Parish work release program and her husband handles most of the gun courses for civilians and cadets, Charlene will sometimes teach these courses as well. The two of them make a pretty good team, especially because most of these classes are about 30 to 40 percent female, David said.
