Convicted robber headed back to prison for assault, battery
A man previously convicted of aggravated robbery is headed back to prison after committing battery and assault while on probation.
The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office sent the following statement:
On Monday, April 2, 2018, Judge John B. Stevens of the Criminal District Court sentenced Bronson Oneal Williams to 50 years in prison. In 2014, Williams had been placed on probation after pleading guilty to two charges of Aggravated Robbery.
Williams failed to comply with the conditions of his probation by committing the new offenses of Aggravated Second Degree Battery, as well as Assault on a Correctional Employee in the Parish of St. Martin, Louisiana.
At the sentencing hearing, Williams expressed no remorse for his actions and pled true to the new offenses. Assistant District Attorney Michael Morgan stated, “We are pleased with the Judge Stevens’ sentence today. The Defendant was afforded a second chance when he was placed on probation, but it became apparent that he was a continuing danger to the community and to those around him. Our office, on behalf of our county, will not tolerate this kind of violent and heinous behavior and would seek similar results for anyone who commits these types of offenses.”
