Shreveport man convicted of felony DWI

SHREVEPORT, La. - A Shreveport man has been convicted of third-offense DWI in Caddo District Court.

Jonathan Matthew Harrell, 43, has two prior convictions for DWI on his record, so he faces a sentence of one to five years in prison and a fine of up to $2,000, with the first year to be served without benefit of probation or parole or suspension of sentence.

On Wednesday the six-person jury unanimously agreed Harrell was drinking and driving on April 23, 2016 when he lost control and crashed into the nursery of a home, shattering a brick wall and rupturing a gas line.

No one was injured in the crash.

Harrell refused the field sobriety and Breathalyzer tests. He had previously been convicted of DWI in Oct. 2005 for a May 2003 arrest and in May 2007 for a Nov. 2006 offense.

A sentencing date will be set during Harrell's next court appearance on Tuesday, April  25.
