Man Pleads Down

After being indicted in August on a number of crimes, including firing a gun into a victim’s Buick LaSabre during an altercation in July of last year, Antoine B. Ladson has pled guilty to the gun charge resulting in the prosecution dropping other counts against him. Those counts included allegations of death threats and attempting to hit a victim with a motor vehicle. Ladson received 10 years probation and is required to pay a $1,500 fine. Ladson allegedly shot and killed his girlfriend, Amy Dean, in August 2016. However, prosecutors dead-docketed the case on Oct. 3, shortly before trial, due to of a lack of evidence. This allows prosecutors to indefinitely suspend the case, while leaving open the possibility of reinstating the case for trial.
