Convicted Shreveport Stalker Lands 15 Year Prison Sentence
A Shreveport man who continued to stalk a woman despite a previous conviction for the threatening behavior, was sentenced to 15 years in prison by a Caddo District Judge Wednesday, January 25, 2023.
Daniel Alfonzo Serrano, 33, pleaded guilty to second-offense stalking before District Judge Donald E. Hathaway Jr. The prison term is to be served at hard labor.
Serrano was previously convicted of stalking the same victim, with whom he never was romantically involved and who did not know him prior to the stalking, on October 6, 2021. He was consistently sending her letters, showing up at her house and exhibiting other harassing behaviors that caused her to fear for her safety.
Following his initial conviction, Serrano continued to contact the victim online and was subsequently arrested for violation of a protective order. While in jail on that charge he wrote multiple letters to the woman describing his obsession with her. That contact led to second-offense stalking charges.
The case was docket No. 387076.
Serrano was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Clinton Bryce Kinley. He was defended by Elizabeth Gibson.
