That was the first note a jury passed to Onondaga County Supreme Court Justice Gordon Cuffy this afternoon. The jury has been in deliberations since around 1 p.m. Monday in the Syracuse murder trial of Jermaine Jennings and Devar Williams. In a second note, the jury indicated it could not reach a unanimous decision, but Cuffy charged members to try their best to reach a conclusion. Jennings and Williams are accused of the ambush-style murder of Iric Green in October 2016.
SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- A jury tonight found Jermaine Jennings guilty of telling his cousin to kill his ex's boyfriend -- but the cousin was found not guilty. After two days of deliberations, the jury delivered a split verdict in the trial of Jennings and Devar Williams. The jury's decision set off a bombastic reaction from spectators who had gathered for more than a week in the Onondaga County criminal courthouse awaiting the outcome of the trial.
SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- A Syracuse man was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison today for the "senseless" murder of a 15-year-boy in 2015. Rondell Scott was sentenced to 25 years to life for the murder of Raquan Jones. A jury found Scott guilty in September of killing Jones when he opened fire on a car stopped at a South Side intersection. A prosecutor said Scott inserted himself into a dispute, possibly over a girl, among teens.
Lawyer friends! I really need your help with this one. If the D was accused of directing his cousin to kill someone -- but the cousin is acquitted -- are we looking at a mistrial? Successful appeal?
Or will the dispositions stand? https://t.co/TEClghC8fC
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
