A 29-year-old Baltimore man facing attempted murder and weapons charges rejected a plea offer of 15 years incarceration on Sept. 13 and is expected for trial later this year.

During reception court before Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Melissa M. Phinn, the prosecution offered Trevon Dominic Frazier a plea of 30 years, suspending all but 15 years, and five years of supervised probation for attempted second-degree murder and a concurrent 20 years, suspending all but five years without parole, for firearm use in a felony or violent crime. This offer was rejected by Frazier and his defense attorney, Jerry Tarud.

A three-day trial was tentatively scheduled for Dec. 18 before Judge Kendra Y. Ausby; however, the prosecutor said one of his witnesses would not be available at that time. Counsel and Judge Phinn agreed to change the trial date when a new date becomes available.

In addition to the aforementioned charges, Frazier is also charged with attempted first-degree murder, first and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, possessing a gun with a disqualifying crime, having a loaded handgun on his person and in a vehicle, firing a gun in Baltimore City and illegal possession of ammunition.
