A man faces two life sentences after a Caddo jury found him guilty of child rape

SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – A Shreveport man was found guilty by a Caddo Parish jury Friday of raping two children and threatening his victims and their families if they reported him.

According to the Caddo Parish District Attorney’s Office, 53-year-old Quinton Carmack Jones was convicted of two counts of aggravated rape.

The first case involved a 13-year-old victim who told a family member that Jones sexually abused her on and off between the ages of seven and 13 while Jones lived in the same house as the victim. Police investigated the incident in 2008 when it was reported, but suspended the investigation pending further contact and the possibility of additional witnesses coming forward.

Another victim came forward in 2017.

Another victim told police that Jones raped her from the age of 3 until she started elementary school. Jones also lived in the same house as the child.

In both cases, the victims say Jones threatened them if they said; he even put a gun to one victim’s head. Jones told both victims he would kill their family members if they told them about the abuse.

The 2008 case was reactivated when the 2017 report was filed, and the Caddo Parish Prosecutor’s Office moved forward with prosecuting both cases.

Both victims, the 2008 victim’s grandmother, the Gingerbread House forensic interviewer who interviewed the 2008 victim, a deferred reporting expert, a CARA medical examiner, and two investigators from the Shreveport Police Department testified for the State.

Jones faces two mandatory life sentences for his crimes when he returns to court for sentencing on Oct. 19.
