Early Release Denied
Saturday, 16 February 2013

February 16--  A Toombs County man will complete his sentence in a shooting death case.

Superior Court Judge Cathy Palmer denied a motion by 63-year-old Norman NeeSmith that he be released early from jail due to illness. 

Last April NeeSmith pled guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the shooting death of 22-year-old Justin Patterson and was sentenced to serve up to 14 months.

Patterson's family wanted NeeSmith to face a jury trial and objected to the plea and sentence.

The hearing on NeeSmith's motion was held Thursday in Toombs County Superior Court.
