Detroit, MI - A jury of six black women, four white women, and two white men found Jamar Pinkney Sr. guilty of the lesser included of second-degree murder and three counts of assault with a deadly weapon. He showed no obvious reaction as the verdicts were read, the same emotionless face he displayed during the trial.
The jury foreperson, a 21-year-old female college student, later told In Session the initial vote was 10-2 for first-degree murder, but that the majority felt comfortable with a “compromise” after the instruction on intent was reread.
Stay with In Session for the sentencing of Jamar Pinkney Sr. tomorrow starting at 9am ET on Tru TV!
