During the trial, the State presented evidence showing that on October 4, 2020, Defendant Jazelle James threatened the Victim’s wellbeing during a phone call.

Assistant District Attorney Evan Hansinger presented the State’s case as sole counsel. Investigators Luis Gomez and Toni Thomas played vital roles in assisting with the witnesses and evidence in the case. Victim Advocates Nerissa Sims and Candice Brown were vital in supporting the Victim through challenging testimony. The trial began on Monday, April 29, 2024, and concluded Thursday, May 2, 2024.

Senior Judge Linda S. Cowen presided over the trial and sentenced the Defendant to three years of incarceration.

District Attorney Mosley stated, “We condemn all forms of terroristic threats. They are undermining and have no place in our community. As always, I commend my office on their tireless work to secure justice on behalf of all Clayton County citizens.”
