Back in February of 2013 we told you we would watch for the sentencing of Darius Green. Unfortunately, we got sidetracked and never got back to it. We will rectify that now.
Darius Green was charged with stabbing to death Walmart employee David Moultrie. Green and Moultrie apparently got into an argument in the parking lot of the Mt. Pleasant Walmart.
As we expected the 9th Circuit Solicitor pled the murder charge down to Voluntary Manslaughter. Judge Stephanie McDonald sentenced Green to twenty-five years. The 9th Circuit Solicitor also dismissed a 2012 charge of 2nd Degree Lynching. That charge seems to have stemmed from an incident in the Al Cannon Detention Center where Green was incarcerated.
Despite getting a couple of big breaks from the solicitor and his guilty plea, Green filed for post conviction relief in July of 2013. Green is now locked up at Lee Correctional Institution.
