Convicted Murderer Collapses To The Floor & Cries After Judge Rejects His Attempt To Change Guilty Plea And Sentences Him To Life In Prison!
Jaleel Smith-Riley tried to withdraw his guilty plea but the judge denied his request and sentenced him to life in prison without parole for killing a woman and injuring her boyfriend. Smith-Riley collapsed as he heard his sentence. During a hearing on Oct. 19, the judge denied Smith-Riley’s motion to change his guilty plea. Judge Charles Kubicki then began the sentencing hearing. Smith-Riley cried and apologized.
“Deters said that on Nov. 16, 2013, Brooks was in a parked car with her boyfriend, Aron Martin, on Carthage Avenue in Norwood when Riley-Smith approached the vehicle and ordered Martin out of the car.
Deters said Riley-Smith held Martin at gun point while he searched Martin for something to steal.
When he didn’t find anything to take, Riley-Smith shot Martin in the head, then leaned into the car and shot Brooks, Deters said.
Brooks died a short time later. Martin survived his wound, but still suffers residual issues, Deters said.”
