A Shreveport man whose felony history prevents him from owning or possessing a weapon was convicted Wednesday, March 27, 2024, in Caddo District Court.


Robert Earl Green, 53, was found guilty as charged of possession of a weapon by a convicted felon through a unanimous decision by the 10-woman, two-man jury in District Judge Ramona Emanuel’s court. Deliberations lasted about two hours.


Through evidence and testimony from police investigators and an officer with state Probation and Parole, jurors learned that on October 20, 2021, at a residence in the 2300 block of Portland Avenue, Green was in possession of a .22-caliber revolver and that he has a previous felony conviction of second-degree battery, a crime of violence.


When Green returns to court May 13, 2024, he faces a prison term of at least five and up to 20 years without benefit of probation, parole or suspension of sentence and a possible fine of at last $1,000 and up to $5,000.


Green was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorneys Fernando Grider and Senae D. Hall. He was defended by Sean Landry.


The case was docket No. 385927.
