Lincoln Parish October Felony Cases

The following is a press release from the Third Judicial (Lincoln, Union Parishes) District Attorney’s Office.

District Attorney John Belton of the Third Judicial District said the following felony cases were disposed of in Lincoln Parish during October:

Timothy Rhone, 37, was charged with failure to register as a sex offender. He pleaded guilty 10/27/15 after a jury was selected and sworn. He was sentenced to 5 years at hard labor without benefit of parole, probation or suspension of sentence. Officers involved in the investigation were D. Castaneda (RPD), G. Jenkins (RPD), S. Morace (RPD), I. Winston (LPSO) and A. Walker (LPSO). Chief Felony Prosecutor Lewis Jones handled the case.

Rhone, a convicted sex offender, was found to be operating a motor vehicle which had not been appropriately registered with officials as one he would be operating. Belton said he takes seriously the registration requirements imposed on convicted sex offenders and will vigorously prosecute those who fail to do so. He said the public’s safety will always be the main focus of the DA’s office.

Veronica Jackson, 52, pleaded guilty to manslaughter 10/6/15 and sentencing is set for 12/3/15. The lead investigator was Matt Shively with LPSO. Jackson admitted to the murder of Grover Brown, whose body was discovered in his residence by concerned friends after they could no t get him to answer his telephone.

Jackson, who admitted to being in the Brown’s house earlier in the evening, claimed that he was alive when she left and that she left for a Bossier City casino. Belton commended work of investigators who were able to use cell tower information to place the defendant’s cell phone in the vicinity of the victim’s house at the time of the murder. Further, investigators scoured hours of video footage from the casino and were able to determine that the defendant was not there. Finally, Shively was able to recover the murder weapon, a 38-caliber revolver, and clothes worn by the defendant at the time of the murder. Officers were able to show that the victim’s blood was on the weapon recovered from the defendant and also on the defendant’s shoes.
