Speed Sentenced

MAY 3--A Louisiana woman who fired a shot at a male acquaintance who refused to perform oral sex on her has pleaded guilty to a felony gun charge as part of a deal that spares her prison time, records show.

In an April 27 sentencing hearing in the Baton Rouge courthouse, Anneisha Speed copped to a weapons charge, while prosecutors dropped a felony aggravated assault count against the 21-year-old.

Speed was placed on probation for two years and ordered to perform 40 hours of community service. She will also have to pay about $800 in fines and court costs and complete an “Effective Decision Making” course, according to a sentencing order. If Speed successfully completes her probation term, her conviction could be expunged.

Pictured at right, Speed was arrested in May 2019 following a confrontation in the victim’s Baton Rouge apartment.

As detailed in a probable cause affidavit, the victim told police that he had invited Speed to his home “due to the two ‘hanging out’ earlier in the day.” Speed, the man added, subsequently “asked for oral sex.”

After the man declined the request from Speed, she “produced” a .40 caliber handgun and “demanded oral sex again stating if he declined she would shoot him,” police reported. When the man grabbed Speed’s wrist, she fired the weapon, but the round did not hit him.

The victim then fled his home (seen below) and “jumped from the second floor balcony to avoid getting shot at again,” a police lieutenant noted. “The victim stated that while he was fleeing, he heard another shot fired.”

Crime scene investigators recovered a spent shell casing and a live .40 caliber round in the man’s residence.

Arrested shortly after the shooting, Speed was in possession of a spent .40 caliber shell casing and two live rounds when police searched her at the local precinct. “The Defendant admitted to picking up the spent casing because it had her DNA on it,” according to the affidavit.

Speed, who was freed on $17,000 bond following her arrest in the shooting case, was busted earlier this year for battery on a dating partner. She pleaded guilty this month to the misdemeanor count and was placed on unsupervised probation. (2 pages)
