A Shreveport man was found guilty Tuesday, December 6, 2016, of third-offense felony domestic abuse battery, as charged, by a Caddo Parish jury.

John Arthur Davis, 47, was convicted of a November 2013 attack on a female acquaintance with whom he’d had a domestic relationship lasting several years.

The three-man, three-woman jury was selected Monday, December 5, 2016, and all evidence was introduced and considered Tuesday before Caddo District Judge Ramona Emanuel. The jury was released at about 2:45 p.m. and deliberated about 15 minutes before returning with its verdict.

Davis faces a prison term of one to five years, with or without hard labor, and a fine of $2,000. He is subject to enhanced sentencing, however, due to prior felony convictions for simple burglary and simple criminal damage to property, as well as forgery.

He will return to Judge Emanuel’s courtroom December 15, 2016, in preparation for sentencing.

Prosecutors were Caddo Parish assistant district attorneys William Gaskins and Aaron Crawford. Davis’s defense attorneys were William Stampley and Kurt Goins.
