In a preliminary hearing on Wed., March 16, D.A. Paul Connick’s office refused charges for Quinn, citing “further investigation” needed by JPSO.

Quinn is currently incarcerated at the Jefferson Parish Prison and is also being held on a fugitive warrant out of Orleans Parish.

Battery of a healthcare worker is a charge that carries a mandatory one-year prison sentence minimum and can be punishable by up to five years in jail.
