A Shreveport man who attacked his brother with a hammer was convicted of that assault by a six-person jury Tuesday, November 29, 2016, in Caddo District Court.
Albert Jackson, 57, was found guilty of an October 19, 2015, attack in which his brother suffered serious injuries to his face, arm and legs. The attack followed an argument between the two men over money. Jackson then barricaded himself in his brother’s Judson Street house, after which he was arrested by Shreveport police and charged with aggravated second-degree battery.
He will return to Caddo District Judge Brady O’Callaghan’s courtroom January 3, 2017, for post-trial motions and arguments. The court ordered a pre-sentence investigation report. Jackson has a prior arrest for aggravated battery and pleaded guilty to simple battery in 1999.
Jackson faces a fine of up to $10,000 and a prison sentence of up to 15 years.
Jackson was prosecuted by Caddo Parish Assistant District Attorney Mekisha Smith Creal. He was defended by Carlos Prudhomme.
