At 5:23 pm, a jury serving the Macon County Superior Court found Jerimy Adam Burr not guilty on all counts he was charged with from a case stemming from an arrest on August 20, 2014.
After the defendant was found not guilty, he hugged his attorney and shook hands with and hugged his arresting officer and shook hands with the prosecutor.
He was charged with Traffick in Methamphetamine, Possession with intent to Deliver and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. He was represented by Attorney Frank Lay of the Jackson County Bar.
The Honorable Robert G Horne presided over the court.
This is the main reason Macon Media does not publish mug shots.
If Macon Media did publish mugshots, we would have to go back and add an addendum to every article featuring the mugshot to indicate the person was found not guilty by a jury of his or her peers, but the damage to that person's reputation could not be repaired.
MEDIA ROLL CALL
Macon Media was the only outlet present for the entire trial.
A reporter with The Franklin Press was there for jury deliberations, but had to leave moments before the jury indicated they had reached a verdict.
