Following a four-day trial, a Caddo Parish District Court jury has convicted Trevor Arsenio Edden of Shreveport, 27, of domestic abuse battery following his fifth offense.
The four-man, eight woman jury in District Judge Ramona Emanuel’s courtroom delivered its unanimous verdict of guilty as charged Thursday, May 4, 2017. The verdict was returned in 22 minutes.
The victim of the most recent offense also was the victim in two of Edden’s four prior convictions.
“This conviction was nearly three years in the making, as our Victims Assistance Coordinator and Special Victims Unit investigator worked tirelessly to foster a relationship with the victim, who still has visible scars from the October 19, 2014 battery,” Caddo Parish Assistant District Attorney Jessica Cassidy said. “The guilty verdict reflects the commitment by our office as well our community to protect victims who are caught in the cycle of domestic violence.”
Cassidy prosecuted Edden along with fellow ADA William Gaskins. Edden was defended by William Stampley.
Charged with domestic abuse battery fourth or subsequent offense, Edden faces a sentence of at least 10 and up to 30 years in prison at hard labor. He will return to court May 25 to set a sentencing date.
