A recently released recidivist offender was shot and killed in a home invasion attempt in New Orleans on Valentine’s Day.
An East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s office spokesman said Terione Dominque Williams forced himself into a home and held everyone at gunpoint in a robbery attempt. Williams was shot and killed by one of the occupants of the home.
East Baton Rouge Parish Prison records show that Williams was released from the prison on Feb. 3, 2017.
Williams, who was only 19 years old, already had two criminal convictions under his belt, one obtained as a juvenile.
Court records show that Williams was arrested for armed robbery in 2013. In the state of Louisiana armed robbery carries a maximum sentence of 99 years. Facing a possible life sentence, Williams accepted a plea deal on Feb. 4, 2015, to a lesser robbery charge and was sentenced on Feb. 26, 2015, to seven years’ hard time.

Williams was given credit for time served when the court suspended all but the last four years of his sentence. He was then released and placed on supervised probation for five years.
On Dec. 6, 2016, Williams again was arrested, this time for possession with the intent to distribute marijuana and resisting an officer, at which time he was sent back to prison.
He was released from prison in February, just 11 days before being shot and killed in yet another robbery attempt.
The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office says Williams’ death will most likely be ruled a justifiable homicide.
