Shreveport man gets life for rape

Four-time convicted felon runs out of chances with rape of disabled teen

SHREVEPORT, La. - A Shreveport man convicted last summer of raping an intellectually-disabled teen was sentenced to life in prison Thursday.

On August 25, 2016, a Caddo Parish Jury found Timothy Deshun Kelly, 37, guilty of third-degree rape in the April 15 assault on a 15-year-old female.

Thursday, Caddo District Judge Katherine Dorroh sentenced Kelly to serve his life term without probation, parole or suspension of sentence. 

Following the conviction, the Caddo Parish District Attorney filed an habitual offender bill alleging Kelly had three prior felony convictions, two of which were for drug distribution. Following the hearing, Dorroh found Kelly guilty of being a four-time felony offender and imposed the life sentence.

Assistant District Attorneys Jason Waltman and Joshua Williams prosecuted Kelly, who was represented by David McClatchey.
