A Shreveport man was convicted of multiple drug charges Wednesday, December 6, 2017, on numerous drug charges stemming from his arrest February 23, 2017, by the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s office.
Cyrus Eugene Wilson Jr., 37, was found guilty of possession with the intent to distribute the Schedule II drug methamphetamine and possession with the intent to distribute the Schedule II drug cocaine.
All 12 jurors concurred in conviction Wilson on all counts in Caddo District Judge Erin Waddell Garrett’s courtroom.
Wilson faces up to 30 years in prison at hard labor on each count. However, two prior felonies on Wilson’s record — a 1999 simple burglary and a 2011 possession with intent to distribute Schedule I, marijuana — allows the state to pursue enhanced sentencing. Wilson will return to court for formal sentencing on February 28, 2018.
Caddo Parish Assistant District Attorney Kodie K. Smith prosecuted, while Richard R. Fisher served as Wilson’s public defender.
