Jalen Jamel Everett

(Update, Jan. 25) – Jalen Jamel Everett was found not guilty in the Boys and Girls Club shooting case on Jan. 25, after being retried following his second-degree murder conviction in December.

Judge Douglas Randall had set aside the previous guilty verdict in Everett’s case, due to an incidence of juror misconduct.

Everett was found guilty of three counts of second-degree murder, and three counts of assault in the Boys and Girls Club shootings, which took place on Genesee St. in August of 2015.

During closing arguments, Everett’s lawyer said there was no proof Everett had been in the car from which the shots came the night of the shooting.

The jury deliberated for just three hours Wednesday, and Everett was found not guilty on all six counts. 

Another Suspect, Johnny Blackshell Jr., was convicted of first-degree murder charges, earlier this year.

The remaining defendant in the case, Michael Mathis, is scheduled to be tried in June.

(From Dec. 19) – Judge Douglas Randall has upheld his decision to set aside the guilty verdict in the case of Jalen Jamel Everett’s second-degree murder conviction last month.

The Monroe County District Attorney’s Office filed a motion in opposition to the ruling Dec. 19, after Judge Randall had set aside the conviction due to a case of juror misconduct.

A retrial is scheduled to begin Jan. 4; however, the DA’s office may still appeal the decision, prior to that date.

Everett was found guilty of three counts of second-degree murder, and three counts of assault in the Boys and Girls Club shootings, which took place on Genesee St. in August of 2015.

The remaining defendant in the case, Michael Mathis, will likely be tried at a later date.

(From Dec. 8) – Judge Douglas Randall has set aside the guilty verdict in the case of Jalen Jamel Everett’s second-degree murder conviction last month.

Everett had been found guilty of three counts of second-degree murder, and three counts of assault in the Boys and Girls Club shootings, which took place on Genesee St. in August of 2015.

According to reports, one of the jurors had prior knowledge of prejudicial information regarding the case, which the juror then shared with other jury members during deliberation, resulting in an incidence of  juror misconduct.

Everett will now be retried, with the remaining defendant in the case, Michael Mathis, in January.
