“My heart breaks for the victim, and I pray the jury’s decision will bring some comfort to her family. I am grateful to my Assistant Attorneys General Michelle Anderson Thompson and Madeleine Slaughter-Young for their prosecutorial work on behalf of our State. My office and I will continue to fight for justice and public safety.”

Mays is facing two life sentences based on this jury’s finding of guilt.

Mays is currently serving a life sentence for 
prior convictions obtained by Attorney General Jeff Landry’s office for Aggravated Rape, Aggravated Kidnapping, and Felony Possession of a Firearm in another horrific 2012 attack against a woman in Lincoln Parish.
