There’s been an outcome in a high-profile court case following a stabbing near a Newark bar in 2021.
District Attorney Mike Calarco announced that a Wayne County Court jury found Jermaine A. Harrison guilty of first-degree assault on Friday. The conviction, a class B felony, carries a potential sentence of up to 25 years in prison.
First Assistant DA Christine Callanan led the prosecution of the case. Harrison, who resided in Clyde at the time of his arrest, is set to be sentenced by Judge Daniel Barrett on June 8.
Newark police apprehended Harrison in November 2021, following an early-morning stabbing on October 31 at Tommy Boy’s on Railroad Avenue.
The injured man was transported by a private vehicle to Newark-Wayne Community Hospital, where staff alerted the police just after 2:30 a.m. He was later transferred to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester for treatment of injuries that were considered life-threatening at the time. The victim was eventually released from the hospital, but not identified.
