Alleged pimp indicted in assaults

JONESBORO — A Jonesboro man indicted in April for pimping has been indicted in the alleged assaults on two women, according to court documents.

Demetrius Lamont Hadley, 34, was indicted in the Nov. 18 alleged assault on Emily Choate. Prosecutors said Hadley knocked her to the floor and stood with his foot on her neck. He faces charges of kidnapping with bodily injury, aggravated assault and battery under the Family Violence Act.

Prosecutors allege that Hadley attacked Anessa Ivey March 17 in front of two children. Hadley allegedly hit Ivey in the face, grabbed her neck and choked her. He was indicted on two counts of aggravated assault, battery under the Family Violence Act and two counts of child cruelty in the third degree.

Court records show Hadley is due in Clayton County Superior Court Monday for aggravated assault, kidnapping, pimping, false imprisonment and battery. He was indicted in that case in April.

Police said he collected money from a prostitute Nov. 11. He allegedly kidnapped her six days later and held her against her will, hitting her on the chin and choking her.

According to Clayton County State Court records, Hadley pleaded no contest in June in another case, involving obstruction of an officer. He was sentenced to 12 months, with six to serve in jail. The balance of the sentence was to be suspended upon payment of a fine.
