FRANKLINTON, La. –¬†Quanterrius McNeal, a 26-year-old resident of Angie, Louisiana, was sentenced to life in prison by District Judge Ellen Creel on November 21, 2023. This sentence follows his conviction for aggravated second-degree battery and possession of contraband in a penal institution, specifically the Rayburn Correctional Center.

The conviction was secured after a jury trial on May 9, 2023. McNeal was tried as a habitual offender, given his history of violent offenses, including previous convictions for aggravated battery, second-degree battery, simple burglary, and purse snatching.

The case that led to McNeal’s recent sentencing occurred in May 2022 at the Rayburn Correctional Center. An officer conducting routine checks noticed a large amount of blood on the shirt of one of the inmates in a cell shared with McNeal. A subsequent search of the cell uncovered a homemade sharpened weapon in McNeal’s bunk.

Further investigation into the incident, including the examination of surveillance footage, revealed that McNeal had attacked a fellow inmate from behind. He used the homemade weapon to inflict multiple lacerations on the victim’s head and neck. Despite the surprise attack, the victim managed to defend himself, preventing further harm.

The investigation of this case was conducted by the authorities at Rayburn Correctional Center. Assistant District Attorneys Luke Lancaster and Allie Serpas prosecuted the case.
