<quoted text>who did they try and who got 30 yrs?
It was Johnny Sizemore's trial for accessory to murder charges. They found him guilty and the recommendation from the jury was 30 years based on the criteria they were given.
The remaining 3-Nate, Michael, and Eugene will have their trial begin August 4th and Cheryl's is September 29th.

You sure seem convinced that they are all guilty. I'm not so sure. It seems extremely suspicious to me. Maybe people should wait for the rest of them to go to trial before deciding they are guilty.

How can you surmise from what I said that I think the rest are guilty? I was simply stating who they remaining defendants were, and when the trial dates begin for those proceedings. Don't read something in that isn't there. I am a family member of Gerald Sizemore and I have another family member who was at the trial, based on what the convicted defendant stated in court, they are all guilty. But we will let the jury sort that out. And if these United States are still the same one's based on the constitution, I still have my right to my opinion, and based on presented facts, my opinion is not my own alone. And just what part of anything do you find suspicious, if I may ask?

I believe it was you that said "1 down 4 to go". I took that statement as you thinking they were all guilty. Sorry for the confusion! What exactly did the defendant say regarding the other 4 defendants?
My opinion is there are contradicting details in this case. It also seems a bit odd and suspicious to me that there are few details available publicly for this case. The only way to get the facts is to be in the courtroom. I have been looking for details in this case and have been unable to find anything except what is on this blog and it is all very contradictory.

I am not on any side, i am just looking for the facts.

In many cases they will do the sentencing fase right after the verdict. It is very common.
I am not from Manchester so ignore my ignorance, but what relation is the defendents to Gerald? What was the motive?

They were no relation. There are several Sizemore families in Manchester, not all are related. His wife is also a co-defendant that has been charged with solicitation of murder. So, that being said, Greed would have been the motive.

I was simply commenting this was a case with several defendants, and 1 trial was completed, and there were 4 remaining. Kentucky is very "tight" with what you can find out over the internet. I know in Ohio, you can read actual edited transcripts online. My father was in court and from what he told me, he admitted to being involved and also admitted to the other's involvement as well. There was someone from a Federal Prison that testified as to what was told to him as well, which was in accordance with what Johnny Sizemore testified to. My father said with the evidence presented the only finding could have been guilty.

if it had been greed and a planned murder then why would they have let him leave alive and driving his vehicle...and all of them right there to stop him...maybe the transcript will be released one of these days and isnt either of the papers covering the trial?

It was explained in court by Johnny Sizemore that Gerald didn't drive the vehicle, someone else drive it, while someone else followed. The trial is open to the public, anyone can go in and hear testimony.

Again, they were all offered a plea deal of 10 years, but no one took it. Once the trial started, they no longer have an option to take it. Facts are facts Mr. Dragon, typically in most cases I agree with you but the facts of the case are as is, and political conspiracies don't play into this one.

JOHNNY SIZEMORE never took the stand you need to stay off of here and get your facts stright. A good man went to prison for 30 years,Gary G said he drove his self not Johnny Sizemore. I think there is 3 other men and a woman waiting to go to court.And one of them is only 20 years old.You people need to stay off of here till this is over.

It is oscar Gayle House. To my knowledge she wasn't in rehab, she has been jailed a few times for probation violations. April and Starr were there. You should get ahold of someone in the family to ask about them, I don't wish to talk about some things on here.
