|Leehy sentences Logan to 60 years|
Fourth Judicial District Judge Scott Leehy sentenced Artis Logan, 38, to 60 years hard labor for attempted second degree murder.
Leehy sentenced Logan Monday in 4th Judicial District Court.
Assistant district attorney Neal Johnson filed an habitual offender bill of information seeking to have Logan sentenced as a second felony offender after a 12- person jury found him guilty of attempted second degree murder on April 17.
Logan had previously been charged with attempted second degree murder in 1999 after seriously cutting a person during a robbery attempt. He was allowed to plead to aggravated battery and was sentenced to five years hard labor, which he served after his probation had been revoked.
The current charge stems from an altercation that occurred between Logan and William Garrett in September 2007.
After witnessing Logan arm himself with a knife, Garrett turned and attempted to flee the altercation. Garrett ran 40 yards when his pants fell below his knees causing him to fall. Logan caught up with Garrett and stabbed him twice in the torso and then slit his throat. When Garrett arrived at LSU Medical Center, he had no pulse. He was subsequently revived by medical personnel.
As a second felony offender under the habitual offender law, Logan was exposed to a sentence of not less than 25 years and not more than 100 years of hard labor, with benefit of probation, parole or suspension of sentence.
Leehy additionally ruled that Logan would not be eligible to receive any "good time" credit during the 60 years.
"The habitual offender statute is available to see that people who commit repeated acts of needless violence are removed from society," Johnson said. "This is truly an appropriate case for its application."
"I totally support Judge Leehy's sentence in this case," Johnson added.
