District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro’s office on Tuesday (March 19) secured the conviction of a gunman who killed one man and wounded another in two separate Algiers-area shootings three years apart.
After hearing testimony from the first four witnesses at his murder trial that opened Tuesday, Jeremie Bailey asked whether he still could enter into a plea agreement offered before jury selection. An agreement was reached that saw Bailey plead guilty to an amended charge of manslaughter for the November 2014 fatal shooting of 30-year-old Cornell Glover, and to attempted murder for the June 2011 shooting of the victim’s cousin, Michael Glover.
Criminal District Judge Tracey Flemings-Davillier sentenced Bailey, 30, to a flat 30-year prison term for each crime, to be served concurrently and without the benefit of probation, parole or suspension of sentence.
Bailey also pleaded guilty to a separate count of second-degree battery, in connection with an August 2016 jailhouse beating of Michael Glover, inflicted after the two were mistakenly placed on the same tier at the Orleans Justice Center. Glover sustained a broken jaw and was hospitalized for two days after that incident.
Flemings-Davillier imposed an eight-year prison sentence for the battery conviction, to be served concurrently to the 30-year terms for the other crimes.
Assistant District Attorneys Jason Napoli and Jacques Landrieu prosecuted the case.
