jerome power

Jerome Power, 50, douses defense attorney with water just as jury begins to leave for deliberations.

*The courts are getting more ridiculous defendants by the day.

It doesn’t matter what they’re being tried for, they act a fool or the people who want to get to them act a fool.

Maybe the antics on shows like Judge Joe Brown or Judge Mathis or Judge Judy has started this mayhem.

Jerome Power, 50, is on trial for the first-degree murder of his neighbor, Doris Bevins, 68, in her home Sept. 19, 2010, according to local ABC affiliate KCRG.

Bevins was strangled to death in an apparent botched robbery. Police discovered Bevin’s cell phone and charger in Powers’ pocket, but we are praying that he didn’t strangle her with her own pajama pants for her iPhone.
