A Shreveport woman who illegally borrowed an acquaintance’s car two years ago and wrecked it, pleaded guilty in Caddo District Court Tuesday, October 11, 2022, just before her trial was to begin.

Shadeciyon Milton, 25, pleaded guilty to the single charge of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, for which she could receive a prison term of up to two years at hard labor and a fine of up to $5,000 when she returns to District Judge Donald Hathaway Jr.’s court November 29.

Milton’s victim allowed her to reside temporarily in her home on Bolch Street in late August 2020, until Milton could find an apartment. While the victim was at an out-of-town funeral, Milton used her victim’s car without permission, wrecked it and then refused to repair the vehicle. She subsequently was arrested for unauthorized use.

Milton was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Bryce Kinley. She was defended by Sean Landry.
