Guilty of Manslaughter, Justin Lemott Sentenced to 15 Years Behind Bars

Justin Lemott

Guilty of manslaughter…today, twenty-nine-year-old Justin Lemott was sentenced to fifteen years behind bars. But Lemott, who was found guilty of fatally stabbing of seventeen-year-old Richard Waight Junior in April 2014, will only serve ten years and four months. Justice Adolph Lucas deducted the time he had spent in jail prior to his conviction. Originally charged for the murder of Waight, in July of this year, Justice Lucas found Lemott guilty of the lesser charge of manslaughter. Waight was stabbed once to the left side of the chest during a fight at the basketball court in Hattieville.
