A 12-person jury in Avoyelles Parish has found law enforcement officer Derrick Stafford guilty of manslaughter and attempted manslaughter in the shooting death of a 6-year-old autistic boy. His father, Christopher Few, was also wounded in the shooting that took place at the end of a chase in 2015.
Stafford will be sentenced on March 31st. He faces up to 40 years in prison. The jury could have found Stafford guilty of 2nd degree murder, which would have resulted in an automatic life sentence.

One Marksville deputy city marshal charged with murder in the death of 6-year-old Jeremy Mardis wants to find out if prosecutors used hypnosis on any of their witnesses. Norris Greenhouse Jr’s attorney, George Higgins, filed a motion to discover if polygraph tests or sodium pentothal were used. Legal Analyst Tim Meche says this is a more common practice than most think.
