A Hahnville man who in September of last year allegedly fired a gun during a physical altercation with a victim in St. Charles Parish was sentenced to six months in parish prison after pleading guilty to two counts of criminal mischief.
Ingram, 35, of 326 Trailsway Drive and Ray Francois, 37, of 252 East 14th St. in Edgard, were arrested Sept. 28 of 2018 after an argument allegedly led to Ingram pointing a firearm at the victim, according to the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office. A struggle ensued and in the fray, the gun was fired and Ingram and Francois apparently fled the scene.
The two men later turned themselves in to police at Nelson Coleman Correctional Center. Ingram was initially charged with aggravated assault with a firearm and illegal use of a weapon before reaching a plea bargain that dismissed those charges.
Ingram’s sentence is not suspended and he received credit for time served. He is serving his sentence currently at Nelson Coleman Correctional Center.
He also received 24 months of misdemeanor probation to be supervised by the District Attorney’s office, during which time he must submit to random drug screenings at his own expense.
