FALL RIVER, Mass. (WPRI) — A former correctional officer was acquitted Tuesday of a manslaughter charge in the 2014 death of a Swansea woman.A jury found Timothy Levesque not guilty in the fatal shooting of 23-year-old Melissa White, according to Bristol County District Attorney’s office spokesman Gregg Miliote.In response to the acquittal, Miliote said, “As always, we respect the jury’s verdict.”Levesque, 58, contended he shot White in self-defense after she lunged at him with a crowbar. During the trial, his attorneys
said she and two men showed up at his house to confront one of his
sons.

State prosecutors had claimed Levesque planted the crowbar at the scene after the shooting.

That's a pretty unusual allegation. I guess they didn't convince the jury.

Note to self:

Remember to always carry a 'throwdown crowbar' at all times, just in case...

Don't post stuff like this in case the prosecution gets access to my social media.

Second note to self: Always post a smiley with tongue in cheek, just to lay the groundwork for reasonable doubt.

Now where did that tongue-in-cheek smiley disappear to?

I am surprised that prosecution did not argue the woman, as a woman, was too weak to hurt the defendant.  Oops!

Surprising!!!

Don't forget, when it comes to guns in Mass., you're guilty until proven innocent.

I'm not following why him being a CO has anything to do with the story/crime?

unpossible.  The only thing GD hates more than cops are confident heterosexuals and children (unless it's a downs syndrome kid scoring a fake touchdown or a retarded homecoming queen)
