Attempted Murder Defendant Rejects Plea Offer and Receives Tentative Trial Date

On Nov. 18, a defendant facing multiple charges, including attempted murder, was informed that his jury trial would be rescheduled for Nov. 21. 

Larry Alexander Lee, Jr. received a new trial date from Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Melissa Phinn after his initial trial date of Nov. 18 was postponed. 

Lee, 29, has been charged with attempted first and second-degree murder, first and second-degree assault, using a firearm to commit a violent crime, and having a handgun on his person in connection to an incident on Oct. 13, 2021. 

According to WMAR News, officers were called to the 2400 block of Greenmount Avenue around 5 a.m. for reports of a shooting, where a 31-year-old man was found suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

Lee and his defense attorney Roland S. Harris IV, rejected a plea of 50 years, suspending all but 20, with five years of supervised probation for the first-degree attempted murder charge and five years without parole for the use of a firearm during a felony violent crime. 

Under the plea, the defendant would have had to register as a gun offender.

Judge Phinn told the court that if the Nov. 21 date falls through, the trial will be moved to Jan. 3, 2023, with Judge Jeannie J. Hong adjudicating.
