A Shreveport man convicted in Caddo District Court last summer of attempted simple rape  was sentenced Tuesday, January 31, 2017 to 30 years in prison without benefit of probation, parole or suspension of sentence.

Johnny Lee Young, 43, also will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. Tuesday’s sentence will run consecutively to a prior three-year sentence on an unrelated matter. He was sentenced as a second felony offender.

His June 22, 2016 conviction stemmed from the sexual assault of an acquaintance in her home on September 7, 2014.

Young represented himself before Caddo District Judge Ramona Emanuel with Kurt Goins as stand-by counsel. Prosecutors were Edwin L. Blewer III and Aaron Crawford.
