Shreveporter Keith Brown II, 36, was convicted in Caddo District Court Tuesday, February 7, 2023 of attempted indecent behavior with a juvenile for acts committed almost a decade ago.

The five-woman, one-man jury in District Judge Chris Victory’s court deliberated 20 minutes before returning an affirmative verdict of attempted indecent behavior with a juvenile.

On July 19, 2014, a counselor reported to police that the 15-year-old victim notified her and her mother that Brown, the mother’s boyfriend, would sneak into her bed and hold her. The victim said he would grab her buttocks on top of her clothing and cuddle with her while dressed in his underwear. Brown remained in the home and continued to commit acts upon the victim. After the first report, police were unable to get in touch with the victim to continue the investigation. But in 2019 another underage victim came forward with allegations against Brown. The new victim was a victim of sex trafficking who had been brought to Shreveport from Texas. This reopened the original victim’s case and prompted a new search to locate the original victim. She was located and interviewed, and her account remained unchanged.

When Brown returns to Judge Victory’s court March 15, 2023, he faces up to three-and-a-half years in prison with or without hard labor and/or a fine of up to $2,500. He also must register as a sex offender.

Brown was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorneys Victoria Washington and Terry J. Pittman. He was defended by Larrion Hillman.
