On November 30, 2016, Tammy Daley of Iberville Parish, age 47, pled guilty in the 23rd Judicial District Court, parish of Assumption, to the charge of Aggravated Second Degree Battery. Daley was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Thomas Daigle, and presiding over this matter was the Honorable Judge Jason Verdigets. The Honorable Judge Jessie LeBlanc stood in for Judge Verdigets for the purpose of taking this plea. This guilty plea was a result of a plea agreement with the prosecuting attorney just one day prior to Daley’s scheduled trial.
On June 3, 2014, Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to a residence along North Belle River Rd. in Pierre Part in reference to a male subject being stabbed. Upon arrival, deputies were able to determine that Daley and her boyfriend at the time were involved in a heated argument which turned physical. Daley picked up a kitchen knife and stabbed the male subject in the chest. The victim was able to evade Daley and contact the Sheriff’s Office. The victim was then transported to a local hospital where he was treated for his injuries.
Upon entering a guilty plea to the charge of Aggravated Second Degree Battery, as per the plea agreement with the prosecutor, Judge LeBlanc sentenced Daley to a period of 5 years at hard labor with the Louisiana Department of Corrections with credit for time served.
It should be noted that Daley has a 2013 conviction for Aggravated Second Degree Battery in West Baton Rouge Parish. This conviction stemmed after a similar incident. At the time of the Pierre Part stabbing, Daley was on probation in West Baton Rouge after receiving a 10 year suspended sentence. This new conviction is grounds for Daley’s probation to be revoked. If her probation is revoked, Daley is looking at up to 15 years in prison with the two sentences combined.
