Shock Probation Granted for Woman Who Assaulted Elderly Victims

WDRB (Louisville), January 28, 2016


Demesha Hicks is getting out of prison, six months into a 20-year sentence.

Hicks looked for senior citizens at grocery stores, followed them home, and robbed them, sometimes violently. This morning Judge Brian Edwards granted Hicks’ request for shock probation after a hearing earlier in the week.

Attorneys say Hicks was a single mother, homeless and desperate when she committed the crimes, and this was her first arrest.
