A Shreveport man convicted on Tuesday faces up to 15 years for attacking his brother with a hammer.

Albert Jackson, 57, was found guilty of assault on Tuesday in Caddo District Court. He also faces a $10,000 fine.

The attack occurred on Oct. 19, 2015, where his brother suffered serious injuries to his face, arms and legs, according to a news release. 

The two were reportedly fighting over money. After the attack, Jackson barricaded himself in his brother's Judson Street home. Police charged Jackson with aggravated second-degree battery.

Jackson will return to court on Jan. 3, 2017 for post-trial motions and arguments. He has a prior arrest for aggravated battery and pleaded guilty to simple battery in 1999.

Mekisha Smith Creal, Caddo Parish assistant district attorney, prosecuted the case. Jackson was defended by Carlos Prudhomme.
