Murder suspect pours water on his lawyer’s head

Jerome Power pours water on his lawyer's head

Courtroom outbursts by criminals and other defendants are not unusual these days. But Monday’s outburst in a Cedar Rapids, Iowa courtroom was subdued compared to others.

Murder suspect Jerome Power concluded that he wasn’t represented adequately by his attorney after the jury left to deliberate his verdict on Monday. “You sold me out!” exclaimed Mr. Power as he gently poured a cup of water over the head of his attorney, Steve Addington.

From Complex.com:

Power was charged with first degree murder in Iowa for allegedly strangling his neighbor, 68-year-old Doris Bevins, to death in September 2010. Police say they found Power hiding behind the front door after they responded to a 911 call from Bevins’s friend who was on the phone with her during the attack.

Addington argued that it would make no sense for Power to attack a woman when everyone in the neighborhood knew she had no money. Last week, Power held up a hand-written sign in court that said someone else killed Bevins.

      Like that’s going to change the opinion of the jury. It shows how stupid and childish he is

    • Dancerbabe

      Go to jail, do not collect jail & stay there until ur black behind learn how to control your anger.

      Thanks for showing the jury just what your rage can do. #Chupidee

      MaShonda sat down with Global Grind for a brief interview where she discussed how she felt about Alicia’s comments. She also revealed that she’s been through therapy to help her get over her broken marriage and that she’s not as bothered by the entire situation or the subliminal shots as she once was.

      On how she felt when she first read Alicia Key’s interview with JET Magazine
      Not much surprises me anymore when it comes to this situation. I truly thought that everyone’s priority was the well being of the children involved. I don’t see the sense in throwing oil on a fire, it just takes us back to point A. The Jet interview just added insult to injury. I can’t figure out how this makes us better. How is it a positive, humanitarian gesture? But artists must protect their reputation and I get that.

      In the interview Alicia Keys says “…[They] were apart for some time before we ever got together…that doesn’t matter to those who take pleasure in trying to knock others down…there’s no need to fight what’s not true…” Did you feel like this was a indirect stab at your open letter?
      There have been many stabs and shots taken, thankfully they don’t bother me the way they used to. I’ve never lied about one thing involving the demise of my marriage. No, we were not “apart” or separated, and that’s just a fact that can be proven in many ways. Blessings have a way of disguising themselves. This situation has helped me to understand life and what really matters.

      On how she dealt with the divorce
      There is a level of humiliation and criticism that the average person wouldn’t be able to conceive, it really altered my life, but gave me a super thick skin. It’s been a rollercoaster ride. I’ve lost weight, gained weight, lost some hair and almost lost hope and mental focus. For months I saw a therapist because I needed someone to assist me in putting the pieces back together. There was a lot of stress and pain, it’s been challenging. I’ve found ways to cope and not get consumed in a dark space. You have to take care of yourself and move forward. In my case, I have a child and live for him. I have a purpose and I won’t give up on it.
