A Shreveport man with a history of domestic abuse will spend a decade in jail following his guilty plea in Caddo District Court Monday, July 2, 2018.

Quinton Deon Davis, 33, pleaded before Caddo District Judge Katherine Dorroh to felonious fourth-offense domestic abuse battery and to a misdemeanor charge of violating a protective order with the same victim.

Davis admitted to a September 26, 2014 attack on his victim, his eight-months pregnant girlfriend, where he hit her in the stomach with his closed fist, grabbed her by the hair and punched her in the face. He also admitted to making personal contact with her on August 11, 2016, in violation of a protective order issued by Caddo District Court.

Davis has prior convictions for domestic abuse battery in 2005, 2012 and 2014.

On the felony count, he was sentenced to serve 10 years at hard labor, at least three years of which must be served without benefit of probation, parole or suspension of sentence, and also was fined $5,000 plus court costs. For the violation of a protective order, Davis was sentenced to six months, to be served concurrently with the felony sentence.

This is one of many cases prosecuted by the Special Victims Unit that was created under the Stewart Administration to focus on domestic violence and sexual assault cases.

The prosecutor was Assistant District Attorney Nancy Berger-Schneider. Davis was defended by Ricky Swift.
