A Shreveport man who led Shreveport police on an almost four-mile long chase following an attempted traffic stop was convicted of aggravated flight from an officer Wednesday, May 22, 2024, in Caddo District Court.
The 11-woman, one-man jury in District Judge Ramona Emanuel’s court deliberated a little over an hour before its unanimous guilty verdict against Jerron Bailey Sr., 38, with regard to events that transpired on November 13, 2022.
Evidence and testimony proved to jurors’ satisfaction that Bailey, who officers tried to stop for driving 92 mph in a 60 mph zone, fled at speeds of up to 25 mph over the limit, running red lights and crossing the roadway center lane.
When Bailey returns to Judge Emanuel’s court June 24, 2024, he faces a sentence of up to five years in prison at hard labor.
Bailey was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorneys Fernando Grider and Senae Hall. He was defended by Dave Knadler and Royal Alexander.
The case was docket No. 392336.
