LIVINGSTON, La. (BRPROUD) — A 34-year-old man has been sentenced to 109 years in prison for the armed robbery of a UPS employee.
The robbery took place in December 2020, according to Livingston Parish District Attorney Scott Perrilloux.
In 2020, Jeremy McDavis brandished a semi-automatic weapon and forced a UPS driver to place multiple packages into his vehicle, according to a news release from Perriloux’s office. McDavis led Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies on a several-mile-long chase before crashing into a ditch off of 4-H Club Road.
A Livingston Parish jury deliberated for less than an hour before finding McDavis guilty, according to Perrilloux.
On Dec. 6, Judge Charlotte Foster sentenced McDavis to 104 years on the armed robbery with a firearm charge, five years on the aggravated flight from an officer charge and four years on a drug possession charge but allowed the charge to run concurrently.
Perrilloux stated in a news release that he was pleased with the sentence and noted that this was a very appropriate punishment considering the defendant’s lengthy criminal history and the extreme danger involved with the facts of this crime.
