    Greenhouse case: Judge won't decide change of venue until jury selection

    http://www.kalb.com/content/news/Jud...447955943.html

    Avoyelles Parish Judge William Bennett has neither granted nor denied a motion from Norris Greenhouse, Jr. and his attorneys, George Higgins and Rocky Wilson, to change the venue of his trial. Instead, the motion will be referred to jury selection when the trial begins next Monday.

    Judge Bennett released his reasoning for the decision on Tuesday following a hearing on Monday where Greenhouse, Jr.'s attorneys tried to argue that pretrial publicity would not allow him to receive a fair trial in the parish. He said that the Court has serious concerns that a "fair and impartial jury can be impaneled," but will make a decision to grant the motion if it becomes obvious that a fair jury cannot be.

    Greenhouse pleads guilty to negligent homicide

    https://www.avoyellestoday.com/news/...igent-homicide

    At a hastily called hearing this morning, Norris Greenhouse Jr. pleaded guilty to negligent homicide and malfeasance in the Nov. 3, 2015 shooting death of 6-year-old Jeremy Mardis. He will be sentenced to a total of 7.5 years -- five for negligent homicide and 2.5 years for malfeasance. Two years of the negligent homicide sentence must be served before he is eligible for parole. Formal sentencing will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday.

    Prosecutors spoke to Few and the child’s grandmothers and they had no objection to the plea offer.
    Sinquefield said several factors in Greenhouse’s case were different than in Stafford’s. Greenhouse fired four bullets and there is no forensic evidence that the bullets struck “anything but the car,” the prosecutor noted. Stafford fired 14 shots with several bullets striking Few and his son.

    So I guess he gets off with a lighter sentence, because he is a bad shot.

    Jeremy Mardis' dad: Relief at agreement that averts trial - October 4th

    http://www.thetowntalk.com/story/new...ial/729410001/

    Before Norris Greenhouse Jr. was sentenced for the death of Jeremy Mardis, the boy's father said he's grateful that he and his family won't have to endure another trial.

    Greenhouse was sentenced to five years for negligent homicide and two-and-a-half years for malfeasance in office. Both sentences are to be served at hard labor, but neither are designated as crimes of violence.

    He will have to serve at least two years of the negligent homicide sentence before he's eligible for any release or reduction in sentence. He does get credit for time served, but the time he spent under house arrest does not count.
