Jermaine Moody, Guilty of Manslaughter

Jermaine Moody

Justice Adolf Lucas also handed down a ruling in the case of twenty-nine-year-old Jermaine Moody.  In the trial of judge without jury, Moody was found not guilty of murder, but guilty of manslaughter in the death of thirty-one-year-old Moses Coc. Coc died from a blow to his head on September thirteenth, 2014 on Angel Coral Street in San Pedro.  But Moody will not know his fate until the sixteenth of July to give Moody’s attorney, Oswald Twist, time to prepare a plea for mitigation. In a caution statement to the police, Moody admitted to killing Coc but said that it was in self-defense. In a statement from the dock, Moody added that he defended himself using a stick when a pair of men wanted to steal his bicycle. The crown called only one witness, Jeronimo Ack.  The trial began on May twenty-eighth.
