Amite- District Attorney Scott M. Perrilloux reports that 26-year-old Davonta Abron, of Hammond, LA, pleaded no contest to hit and run driving resulting in death or serious bodily injury.

On May 7, 2018, a Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office deputy was flagged down at the Cypress Cove Apartments located on East Park Avenue in Hammond, LA. The concerned citizen advised that a child had been struck by a vehicle while riding his bike and that the vehicle fled from the scene. The driver was seen getting out of the vehicle and walking around accessing the damage then drove away.

The officer attempted lifesaving efforts on scene before the victim, 5-year-old Amani Robinson, was transported to North Oaks Hospital where he died as a result of his injuries. Through witness accounts, the suspected vehicle was a black Nissan Sentra with headlight damage.

The vehicle description was sent to Hammond Police Department and the vehicle was located with the owner operating it. Further investigation revealed that Davonta Abron was the driver of the vehicle at the time of the incident that resulted in the death of Amani Robinson.

Abron was located and placed under arrest without incident and transported to the Tangipahoa Parish jail.

Davonta Abron was sentenced to 10 years with the department of corrections which is the maximum sentence under the law for this crime. He received credit for time served.

Assistant District Attorney Taylor Anthony represented the State of Louisiana; Judge Jeffery Johnson handed down the sentence.
