A 24-year-old Augusta man convicted of murder for killing a friend was sentenced Monday, March 7, to life in prison without the possibility of parole plus 25 years.
Jamal Moss was convicted Friday, March 4, of murder and violation of the state’s Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act for the June 3, 2018, slaying of 25-year-old Mishon Robinson.
According to testimony during last week’s trial, Moss was angry that Robinson did not come to his aid when he was jumped and beaten earlier in the day. Robinson was outside an Alpine Road apartment when he was shot to death.
Moss also shot Robinson to maintain his position in a local Bloods gang, Billy Bad Ass, according to the indictment.
The Richmond County Superior Court jury that convicted Moss of murder acquitted him of charges filed in connection with a shooting at the home of one of the men who jumped on Moss.
