Patrick Delony, convicted earlier this month of being a felon in possession of a firearm, was sentenced in Caddo District Court Wednesday, January 24, 2024, to serve a decade in prison at hard labor.


District Judge Donald Hathaway Jr. imposed the term following a sentencing hearing on Belcher resident Delony, 38, who was convicted January 9. Delony had been apprehended August 31, 2022, after Caddo Sheriff’s deputies responded to a fight in-progress call at a business on North Market Street in Shreveport. Delony attempted to flee the scene in his truck, but was stopped by deputies, who found three firearms in his possession. Delony has a June 2022 controlled dangerous substances conviction on his record and cannot own or possess a firearm under Louisiana law.


Assistant District Attorneys Christopher Bowman and Briana Spivey prosecuted Delony. He was defended by Walter Gerhardt.


The case was docket No. 391104.
