A 32-year-old man was offered a plea offer during reception court on Sept. 20 before Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Melissa M. Phinn

Demario Henry is charged with first and second-degree attempted murder, having a handgun on his person, firearm use in a violent crime, possession of firearm with a felony conviction, and having a loaded handgun on his person.

He was charged in connection to an incident on Oct. 5, 2020.

Judge Phinn listened as the prosecutor presented a plea of life, suspending all but 20 years, with five years supervised probation for first-degree attempted murder. 

The defendant and his defense attorney, Koryn High, have not yet decided to accept or decline the plea offer. In addition, Henry decided to keep his Hick’s date, which is his right to be tried within 180 days of his first court appearance. 

According to the North Carolina Department of Public Safety, on Oct. 15 at approximately 1:10 a.m., officers responded to another shooting Henry is suspected of being involved in that occurred on the 100 block of East Albemarle Street in North Carolina.

Police identified Henry as a suspect in the shooting; however, police did not say if and/or how Henry is connected to shooting. In addition, authorities did not specify how or where they located Henry prior to his arrest. 

A trial for Henry has been scheduled for Dec. 2, 2021.
